Transcript Historical In the days just subsequent to the wresting from MExico by the patriots of Texas, Houston had its founding. Scattered throughout the Republic, settlements of hardy, sturdy pioneers sought and encouraged the establishment of a central market where they might exchange the products of their toil for the manufactured necessities of life. Other men of vision, sensing the requirements of the new Republic in commercial ways, selected the site on which Houston now stands as the logical location for such a mart. It was at the head of the water transportation facilities of those days, enabling the quickest and most economical movement of passengers and freight to and from the interior. That was in 1837. Sam Houston, in command of the Texas forces, had just won a decisive victory over the Mexican general, Santa Anna, on the battlefield of San Jacinto, twenty miles from the city of Houston. What more appropriate name could be given to the new commercial metropolis of the Republic than that of the hero of the battle that gave to Texas her indepencence? And so the city of Houston was born. The struggles of the Republic during its early days comprise a most interesting and inspiring bit of American history. Houston bore its portion of adversities and secured its share of rewards - evidenced by the subsequent development. The demands of this later day and the developments in transportation facilities, notably the creation of an inland deepwater port at Houston, have produced a situation which makes that city an attractive location for manufacturing purposes.
