Thank you TMag. Love reading this every year and I think how soft so many have gotten and forgot what it took to get where we are today. The sacrifices those men made were history changing.

Santa Anna had the bodies burned after the battle. When the Revolution was over Juan Seguin fulfilled his promise to return to the Alamo and collected the remains and place them in the church.

If you have never been I highly suggest a visit. Beautiful place and very humbling.

I did not know that. Here’s some pictures off the web.

Iknow I read this last year. There's been similar posted every year, but in rereading I saw the letter from Travis to Jessie Grimes. Jessie Grimes was my Grandmothers GGranddad that signed the Texas Declaration of Independence and went on to fight with Sam Houston at San Jacinto.

That is history you can be proud of.

The attached is from the Traces of Texas Facebook feed I get. If you do not have it already you should! Lots of old photographs with historical significance and some are just extraordinary photography.
