10) Goliad: Goliad is a city located in Goliad County, Texas. The first declaration of independence of the Republic of Texas was signed here on December 20, 1835. On March 27, 1836 during the Texas Revolution the Goliad massacre occurred here when General Antonio López de Santa Anna ordered the Mexican army to kill about 400 Texans. This like the Alamo enraged many rebelious Texans and sent a wave of fury across the US. Eventually US would beet Mexico and Texas would be free.
