The Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, was the decisive battle in the Texas Revolution. Most Texans know the story of the battle. Join us on April 26 to hear stories about individuals and little known incidents of the battle. Some of the stories are heroic, while others are humorous. All of the stories are true. Joe Monk is a volunteer park ranger and guide at the San Jacinto Monument. His presentation will begin at 11 AM in the library’s meeting room. He will have a mini-museum with weapons and artifacts on hand to view.
This presentation is the latest installment in the library’s Featured Friday series. These monthly programs offer a variety of lectures, movies and special programs of cultural, historical and local interest.
Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Deer Park Public Library. No registration is required and all are welcome to attend. There is no admission fee. The library is located at 3009 Center St., Deer Park, TX 77536.
