James Fannin

James Walker Fannin Jr. (1804 or 1805 – March 27, 1836) was a 19th-century slave-trader and American military figure in the Texas Army and leader during the Texas Revolution of 1835–36.

After being outnumbered and surrendering to Mexican forces at the Battle of Coleto Creek, Colonel Fannin and nearly all his 344 men were executed soon afterward at Goliad, Texas, under Santa Anna's orders for all rebels to be executed.

He was memorialized in several place names, including a military training camp and Houston's major city street.
