San Jacinto Symposium
University of Houston-Downtown

The annual, one-day, Battle of San Jacinto Symposium is the preeminent conference on the Texas Revolutionary era. It is a forum for promoting public awareness and scholarship about the Mexican national era in Texas (1821-1835), the Texas Revolution (1835-1836), the Battle of San Jacinto (1836), and the Republic of Texas (1836-1845). These pivotal years, mark the transition from Spanish and Mexican sovereignty to independent Texas and annexation to the United States.

The theme of the 2020 Symposium is “Myths, Mysteries, and Misunderstandings of San Jacinto”.

Co-sponsored by the San Jacinto Battleground Conservancy (SJBC), the Symposium was started in 2001 by the SJBC and has now passed into the hands of the Texas State Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the preservation of Texas history.
