Thread Name: Remember the Alamo (March 6, 1836)
Subject: RE: BS: Remember the Alamo
LadyJean, that may be a bit of Houston's revisionist history. He said he sent Bowie to "blow up the Alamo", but that was after he did not send relief. I know he didn't have much of an army, but there were three hundred men at Golliad under Col Fannin who never responded to Travis's calls for help, and he did call many times. 32 very brave men from Gonzales were all that came.
