Sincere in his promises, General Urrea pleaded with Mexican president Santa Anna to spare the lives of the Texians — and especially Fannin, whom he respected. But numerous complications, and indecision, compounded the time lost. Eventually, on February 25, , Col. Fannin and his troops set out for San Antonio, but stalled quickly as wagons broke down. After hearing of the defeat at the Alamo, General of the Texian army, Sam Houston, sent news of the massacre and orders of evacuation to Fannin.

Due to, once again, his indecision but also other factors out of his control, Fannin and his men finally evacuated Fort Defiance on March 19 — torching the city, and incidentally, their food supplies, on their way out of town.

The departure from Goliad once again stalled as crossing the San Antonio River proved difficult for the wagons and oxen pulling them. But the Texian mass made it past the troublesome riverbank and embarked out onto the open prairie. Initially, the Texians held off the Mexicans until nightfall, when the latter retreated to the cover of Coleto Creek — the woodlands Fannin should have jumped to in the first place.

But after a sleepless night caused by Mexican battle songs and intermittent sniper fire, Fannin awoke to a parley request — signaled by a waving white flag. Fannin, still stricken by his wound, limped to a midway point on the battlefield wherein Urrea offered his terms. Facing no other option but a similar to-the-last-man final stand Travis and his men made at the Alamo — but with far fewer supplies and less cover, Fannin took Urrea at his word and secured what he believed to be the safety of his men.

Immediately after the surrender, the Texians were led back to Goliad where they were interned for a few days. The Texians were given little to no food or water, but still believed their release would be honored. On the eighth day of their surrender — March 27, — the non-wounded Texians were separated into three groups and led out of town by Mexican regulars in three different directions.

About a half-mile out, still in spitting distance from the town they had previously occupied, the Texians were ordered to halt. Executions of prisoners occurred after the Mexican president took the Alamo, but the executions at Goliad far outnumbered those at the Alamo as most of the defenders died in battle. These men were shot like cattle.

Fannin himself was also unceremoniously shot, but not as part of the larger groups. Just before his execution, Fannin paid a soldier everything he had to secure his burial. For the fledgling country with no regular army, one would think this to be a knockout blow. Led by Sam Houston — a former governor of Tennessee — the Texians would run a Fabian strategy, similar to that of George Washington 60 years earlier in the American Revolution.
