No. The Battle of San Jacinto was the final battle of the war between Texas and Mexico and resulted in Santa Anna's surrender to Sam Houston; it took place in San Jacinto. The battle that took place at the Alamo occurred in San Antonio. It was fought before San Jacinto and was a victory for the Mexicans.
San Jacinto Day is an official state holiday in Texas and remembers the Battle of San Jacinto, near present-day Deer Park and LaPorte, Texas. On April 21, 1836, Texans won their independence from Mexico by defeating Santa Ana at the Battle of San Jacinto. San Jacinto Day is a celebration of that anniversary.
