Thread Name: Remember the Alamo (March 6, 1836)
Subject: RE: BS: Remember the Alamo

To besiege the Alamo was pointless and unnecessary. It delayed the Mexican army from doing much more vital strategic things that could have won them the campaign. It was simply a grandiose act of pride by Santa Ana. Militarily speaking, the man was an idiot.
