Thread Name: Remember the Alamo?
Subject: RE: Remember the Alamo?
I don't see why there should be any stigma attached to someone leaving the Alamo before the battle. I think the chances of slipping through the Mexican lines must have appeared quite slim, so it would have taken considerable guts either to go or to stay. He who went might be of use to the Texan army in future battles, after all. Dead heroes are great, but to win the next battle you need some live ones too.
