In grateful appreciation of the efforts of the
citizens of Cincinnati, Ohio,
whose generous help extended here to out fore-
fathers struggling for freedom and justice,
helped achieve a new dawn for free men
at San Jacinto on April 21, 1836:
We, the descendants of those brave men,
hereby dedicate replicas of the
Twin Sisters from Cincinnati
at San Jacinto on April 21, 1974,
and rededicate ourselves to the responsible
continuation of the freedom they gained for us.
