Transcript of Goliad Massacre

The Goliad Massacre
Before the Massacre
The Goliad Massacre started when the Mexicans invaded into Texas. This invasion was led by General Santa Anna who was followed by 5000 men. The Texans were led by James W. Fannin to protect the borders of Goliad. The Battle of Coleto preceded the Goliad Massacre when Fannin and the Texans tried to retreat from Goliad.
The Goliad Massacre began on March 27, 1836 at 6:00 AM. Only an hour later, the Texans raised the white flag (signaling their surrender). Santa Anna captured the men as prisoners and sent out the prisoners into three groups and were shot in an open field.
