Subject: RE: The Alamo--Needless Martyrs
I guess they were 'making a point'...but in the face of 27 bazillion Mexicans, I would have thought "surrender" and live to continue the struggle elsewhere.
(Just saw the BIG movie with John Wayne, and they managed to do more preaching, speculating and other tedious oratory than fighting! Old farts with grizzled beards having learned philosophical discussions about the afterlife! Sure..)
