Santa Anna stuck in the mud on the way to Harrisburg
Getting tighter. All the forces getting jammed down to a smaller area.
Santa Anna leads a force of 700 out of Ft Bend toward Harrisburg to capture the Texan Rebel cabinet and government. He's got a cannon with him that repeatedly bogs down in the quagmires that pass for roads. It's raining steadily. Several mules loaded with supplies drown in a creek. The column stretches out in the rain and mire and becomes unwieldy and disorganized, struggling along.
