August 2, 1832

Armed with nothing more than shotguns and various types of hunting weapons, the national militia of Nacogdoches, aided by militias from Ayres, Teneha, Sabine, Bevil, Settlement, and San Augustine, fired the opening guns of the Texas Revolution during the Battle of Nacogdoches on August 2, 1832. Colonel Jose de las Piedras commanded his 300 member Mexican garrison from the Old Red House situated on this site. Piedras lost 47 men, with 40-60 wounded. Victory at the Battle of Nacogdoches enabled people of Texas to organize the Texas Revolution without Mexican military intervention. We honor all 253 participants. We know the names of only 80.
