San Jacinto Battleship Monument

This is the memorial park for one of the historical wars that Texas fought with Mexico and won. The monument is set amidst 1200 acres of sprawling grassland and forests. There are nice walking trails which visitors can use for recreation and exercise. I will be posting pictures of the memorial in upcoming posts.

Close at hand is the Battleship Monument which houses an old warship. Marooned in the bay the warship "Texas" showcases how the navy fought in the earlier part of the 20th century. Then there are vast expanses of open areas for people to hangout and enjoy nature. Here are few pictures of the ship.
