On this date in 1836, Mexico’s army captured and executed 417 Texas rebels. After the siege of The Alamo in San Antonio, Santa Anna ordered the deaths of all the Texas revolutionaries in the town of Goliad. They had surrendered to superior Mexican forces, expecting to be held as prisoners of war. Their deaths and what happened at The Alamo inspired the revolutionaries, led by Sam Houston, to ultimately win their independence less than a month later.
And in 1912, First Lady Helen Taft joined the wife of Japan’s ambassador in planting two Yoshino Cherry Trees on the banks of the Potomac River. Japan donated 3,020 of the trees as a gift to the United States, and right now they’re in bloom throughout our nation’s capital.
