Subject: RE: The Alamo--Needless Martyrs
The folks who fought this battle did it over land. It was a case of we want it and you are a bad greedy dictator.

The people in the middle - the native Texans, Hispanics and a few Irish Catholic refugees (funny that bit ...these folks were taken from under the yoke of colonial England in Ireland to the then Tejas IN Mexico where they were allowed to be Catholics )- got the shaft as usual.
