Thread Name: The Alamo--Needless Martyrs
Subject: RE: The Alamo--Needless Martyrs
The British have their national myths - Arthur and all that bunch; and the French have theirs, with Charlemagne, and the Spanish with El Cid, etc. ad infinitum. Why is everybody determined that we can't have ours? And what does what actually happened have to do with it?
