When the Texas Army made the decision to confront their enemy, it was also important to choose the best ground. The area surrounding the access to Lynch's Ferry now became the primary focus for both armies as they suddenly raced toward the area in order to claim a strategic hold of this important site. Operating with better military intelligence, Sam Houston's army pushed through the muddy prairie at a forced march. On the morning of April 20, 1836, with little sleep and food to sustain them, the rag-tag force reached the vicinity of what is now Vopak to discover they had indeed won the race. The new tank image captures the spirit of the lead column of the Texas Army at that exact moment.
