After nightfall the Texicans talked it over. It was possible that some folks could make a dash for the timber and escape but that would leave the wounded behind at the mercy of the Mexicans. It was decided that everyone would stay put. Trenches were dug and barricades strengthened. A cold shower blew through. The Mexicans blew bugle calls all night to keep the garrison awake. Some sniping.
The battlefield, day one.
