Santa Anna and his various armies are across the Brazos. Houston is to the North of him retreating East from Groce's Plantation. The Texas Cabinet is rumored to be at Harrisburg. Houston has done nothing but flee from the Mexicans and is rumored to be marching to Nacogdoches. If the Mexicans can hang the leaders and cut off Galveston, the last open port, the war will be over. As a practical matter it's over now, with no more big offensive operations anticipated.
Hang the cabinet, post some garrison troops and head for Mexico City. Santa Anna decides to leave Fort Bend and head for Harrisburg.
