Remember The Alamo

About the time of this post, 5:00 a.m., Santa Anna was preparing to step off against about 200 Texian patriots in a little fortification outside of San Antonio.

By 6:30, a.m., the battle was over and the defenders of the Alamo were thrust into eternity.

This, of course, led to a series of events that culminated in the capture of Santa Anna by Texas forces at San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.  Texas independence followed soon after.

And that same spirit is alive in Texas to this day (not counting Austin, which has gone left coast nuts)
