A signed photographic portrait of Sam Houston and an original signed letter from General Santa Anna have been added to the collection at the San Jacinto Museum of History. The photograph of Sam Houston was taken approximately between 1858 and 1863, the year of his death; it shows Houston seated. The portrait was discovered by Dr. Jim Harris of Tyler in an antique store in Las Vegas. An article in The Bayshore Sun [Oct. 28, 2009, pg. 4, Sect. A] states: “This type of photograph is rare: a minimal number of portraits of Sam Houston currently exist. The fact that this portrait is signed by Sam Houston himself is extraordinarily rare”.
