The U.S.S. Texas BB-35 was commissioned in 1914. At that time she was the most powerful weapon in the world. She saw action during the Second World War in the invasions of Morocco, Normandy, and Southern France. Her speed was 20.4 knots which is about 24 MPH. Her complement in 1945 was a crew of 1,464 with 101 officers and 80 Marines.

Here, on April 21, 1836, the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution was fought. Nine hundred men led by Gen. Sam Houston, Commander-in-Chief of all Texas forces surprised the Mexican army under the command of President Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana which was encamped on the San Jacinto River; in a battle lasting 18 minutes, the Texans routed the enemy, killing or capturing many Mexican soldiers. The following day Santa Ana himself was captured, and was held hostage against further Mexican attack.
