  • 1863 – death of Sam Houston, American soldier and politician, 7th Governor of Texas. Samuel "Sam" Houston (March 2, 1793 – July 26, 1863) was an American politician and soldier, best known for his role in bringing Texas into the United States as a constituent state. His victory at the Battle of San Jacinto was one of the shortest decisive battles in military history and secured the independence of Texas from Mexico until Texas could join the Union. Houston was also the only American to be elected governor of two different States (as opposed to territories or indirect appointments) and the only Southern governor to oppose secession which led to the outbreak of the American Civil War.
