Texas Stamp on an 1845 State rifle.
I learned much and stayed with one subject for two weeks on my blog. New approach. I was tempted to post about other events during the TSRA convention and a remarkable two weeks of D.C. foolishness but decided to honor the battle by keeping it simple.
Sorry for the mistakes. I tried to keep them to a minimum and correct when I saw them. I rarely had an idea for a day's post other than surveying my sources and seeing what came to mind. Usually wrote and posted late so that a new post would go up near midnight.
My three sources were Hardin's excellent "Texian Illiad", Edwin P. Hoyt's "The Alamo, An Illustrated History", and Huffine's dramatically titled "Blood of Noble Men, The Alamo Siege and Battle." There are new sources and stories yearly.
I hope to make this an annual effort. The battle deserves contemporary presence on the world wide web in this modern time of complexity and bureaucratic confrontation of human rights.
Thanks to everyone who read and commented.
Remember the Alamo.
