In December 2001, the Texas Society of the United States Daughters of the War of 1812 dedicated this monument to the those individuals buried at the Texas State Cemetery who served and fought for the United States during the War of 1812.

Following Revolutionary War, the United States struggled economically, politically, and diplomatically. One of the results was the War of 1812, which lasted until 1815. Many of the veterans of the War of 1812 would later migrate to Texas and would become instrumental in Texas Independence and key figures in the Republic of Texas.
