Most Hallowed Ground: Goliad

Most Hallowed Ground: Goliad

The Presidio Nuestra Señora de Loreto de la Bahía,more commonly known as Goliad, has a long history as some of the most fought over ground in Texas. For over a century, the Presidio, or fortress, at Goliad had been one of the most important military installations in Texas, and was the center of several bloody battles. The most famous of these was on March 27, 1836, Palm Sunday, when the Texan garrison of Goliad, under Col. James Fannin, was marched out of the presidio and executed by their Mexican captors. This massacre would spur Texas forces on in their fight for independence. This week we Remember Goliad!
