  • It should also be noted that Fannin Battleground State Historic Site along with 19 other sites will be closed under Perry's budget. This is the site where Fannin surrendered before being marched to Goliad to be executed one week later. There are also 91 souls still buried there. This site can be operated for under $50k annually.
