On March 27, 1836, Santa Anna ordered a mass execution of Texan revolutionary army prisoners, marking the tragic end to the Goliad Campaign of 1836. A total of 342 individuals were killed on these orders, and only a lucky few were able to escape the merciless slaughter. The event damaged Santa Anna’s international reputation and deepened sympathy for the revolution in the United States.
