墨西哥将军安东尼奥.罗培兹.圣塔.安那 (Antonio López de Santa Anna) 于183636日收复白杨镇 (Alamo)


1836421日,德州军队的指挥官山姆.休士顿 (Sam Houston) 率领800名军队突袭圣塔.安那的1600名士兵。他们高喊着「记住白杨镇!」德州军队在18 分钟内就赢得了山杰森脱之战 (Battle of San Jacinto) ,而德州也正式脱离墨西哥而独立。在德州于1845年成为美国一州之前,已经维持了近10年的独立地位。

On the morning of March 6, 1836, General Santa Anna recaptured the Alamo, ending the 13-day siege. An estimated 1,000 to 1,600 Mexican soldiers died in the battle. Only one of the 184 Americans survived.

On April 21, 1836, Sam Houston, commander of the Texas Army, led 800 troops in a surprise attack on Santa Anna's 1,600 men. Shouting, "Remember the Alamo!" the Texas Army won the battle at San Jacinto in 18 minutes and secured Texas independence from Mexico. Texas remained independent for nearly 10 years, becoming a state in 1845.
