Sam Houston leads his troops to victory against General Santa Anna's forces, who have set up camp in a vulnerable spot. Because the Texians were familiar with the terrain, which had many thick oak groves separated by marshes, and were in a location with strong cover against fire, they were able to win the battle so quickly and with much fewer losses. The clip mentions facts about the battle, including that Santa Anna's forces were defeated in just 18 minutes.
