The Goliad Massacre, the darkest day in Texas history, took place here on Palm Sunday, March 27, 1836, when Col. James Fannin and 352 men under his command were executed under orders of the Mexican dictator General Santa Anna. There was twice as much loss of life here at Goliad than at the Alamo.  Nothing had touched the raw nerve of the American character as did the news of the large number of men who were slaughtered execution style after willfully surrendering.
