San Jacinto Banner - April 21, 1836
The Flag of San Jacinto
San Jacinto Banner - The battle flag of the Newport Rifles, commanded by Col. Sidney Sherman. Lady Liberty painted on a silk banner.
Sherman's men, moving swiftly through the woods on the left flank were the first to make contact with the enemy at the Battle of San Jacinto, taking General Cos’ command by surprise.
Sherman, leading the way, was the first to shout, “Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!”
The remnants of the original banner hang in the Capitol behind the Speaker's podium when the House is in session. A replica hangs there at all other times.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever-so-lightly-textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
