Isaac Batterson Historical Marker

Famed for its part in winning the War for Texas Independence, the flooring of this house was, on April 19, 1836, appropriated by General Sam Houston to build rafts to ferry his army across rain-swollen Buffalo Bayou. Although 248 soldiers, most of whom were ill, remained at the Batterson place, Houston's army was victorious in the Battle of San Jacinto two days later. The marker is located at the Galena Park City Hall building: 2000 Clinton Drive, Galena Park, TX.
