Remember Goliad!

Pesidio La Bahia and its mission, established by Spanish priests in 1722 and located in Goliad, Texas, became a key battleground in the Texas war of independence in 1835. The Texans who had held the fort were executed by the Mexican army on Palm Sunday, 1836. In the final battle in the war of independence at San Jacinto, Texas, the rallying shout was, "Remember Goliad! Remember the Alamo!"
