Battle Ship Texas is a ship which was named in honor of the US Texas State.This is the only armored ship which participated in both World War 1 and World War 2.She is the first U.S. battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns. She was also the first to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers. These early computers increased firing accuracy. She has a very large caliber guns and sufficient ammo for the battles .All facilities were provided in the ship so that soldiers can survive in the ocean for years .

Ticket Price: Adult:12$.

Next to the battle ship Texas , we can find a San Jacinto monument which was named  after the last battle.It is the tallest stone monument in the world.San Jancto battle was fought  between mexico and  america .This is a decisive battle for Texas evolution.San Jacinto has museum which focuses on the history of the Battle of San Jacinto and Texas culture and heritage.

I have visited these places with my friends.I captured so many pictures and they were below.Only thing , I missed is going to the top of the monument.I came to know that there is an elevator for reaching to the top and there we can find a view of a Houston.

People who are keen in acquiring knowledge in the battles and in the internal infrastructure of the Ship will enjoy in visiting this place
