San Jacinto Symposium

Important Update Regarding the 2020 San Jacinto Symposium

Given the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, TSHA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s San Jacinto Symposium and Patron’s Dinner. While this year’s event will not be rescheduled, the Association is currently planning to hold a symposium in 2021.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. TSHA will be reaching out individually to those who registered with more information on how refunds for the event will be processed.

Thank you for understanding, and we hope to see you at a future TSHA event.


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.

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.

CPE Credits

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for K-12 educators is offered for attending this event.
