Goliad: Angel of Goliad Statue

During the Texas Revolution, a mysterious Mexican woman began appearing in prisons, offering aid – and even freedom – to suffering Texian soldiers. Her name was Francisca Alvarez (also recorded as Francita Alavez and others)  – but she would be remembered best as the “Angel of Goliad”.

In March 2004, the descendants of Mrs. Alvarez gathered to dedicate this statue in honor of her remarkable courage and compassion, and to memorialize her unique place in Texas history.
