General Sam Houston, the first President of the Republic of Texas and another great Texas hero. He was responsible for the defeat of Santa Anna at San Jacinto. There is a quote by Sam Houston that effectively captures the mood in Texas today: "Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may."

Sam Houston's statue points toward the Houston Zoo and the Medical Center, astride his loyal steed in Hermann Park. A fun place to take family photos, there is a light rail stop nearby serving Hermann Park, the Zoo, and Rice University - Parking can be tough, so I would park on the rail line somewhere and take the train to the park for the day.
