T his landmark lets you know you are in the heart of old-money formerly-great Galveston. It was commissioned by Henry Rosenberg, for whom Rosenberg Avenue (25th Street) is named. The 72-foot monument honors those who fought and died in the Battle of San Jacinto to win freedom for the Republic of Texas from Mexico. At the top of the column is a bronze statue of Victory by Louis Amateis holding a laurel crown. She is gesturing in the direction of the San Jacinto Battlefield and the San Jacinto Monument, erected to honor the same citizen soldiers. Joining Victory on this monument are Defiance and Peace, seated at the base and facing east and west, respectively. Facing north and south are the heroes of Texas independence, Sam Houston and Steven F. Austin.

The statue was commissioned by Henry Rosenberg and placed at the corner of 25th and Broadway on April 21, 1900. At the dedication, the name of the street was changed to Rosenberg in honor of Henry Rosenberg.The statue has survived many hurricanes including the 1900 Hurricane.There is a story that Victory is also pointing in the direction of the infamous "Red Light" district as well.
