The Battle of the San Marcos River, fought in the morning and afternoon of 13 May 1836, was the first of two major battles in the Austrian Intervention of Texas. The battle was a major victory for the Austrians. De Cos' Army of Retaliation was dealt a heavy defeat, with the general himself wounded, forcing Santa Anna to re-deploy his own army in an attempt to deal with Wittelsbach.
