Travis letter may
signal new Alamo era

San Antonio Express-News, by Scott Huddleston

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2013 9:38:12 AM

Friday´s historic return of William Barret Travis´ “victory or death” letter to the Alamo is seen by some as a rebirth for the state shrine — a new way to remember the Alamo. What it could mean is more signs and better displays, storytelling and narration; holistic approaches to the site´s evolution from a Spanish mission to 1836 battle site and U.S. Army depot; and reverence befitting an American Indian burial ground. Despite being celebrated in movies and books as a symbol of freedom, where nearly 200 Texian rebels died as martyrs for independence,

The Travis letter breaks my heart. He was 26 years old.

Get the Texas flags ready, fellow Texans. March 2 is Texas Independence Day, March 6 is Alamo Day and April 21 is San Jacinto Day.

I personally would love to see the answers given by the overlords in both "parties" of our government to the question, "do you remember the Alamo, and what does it mean to you?"

I´ve only ever felt a frisson of awe, for lack of a better word, at two places - The Alamo and Antietam. Both places took my breath away, and I could FEEL the magnitude of what had happened there. God bless Texas. Remember the Alamo!

For those who are interested, here is a little video with a background of "El Deguello", which signifies No Quarter, No Mercy. Legend has it that Santa Ana placed 14 military bands around the Alamo on March 6, 1836, so everyone inside would be sure to hear. All knew they would probably die that day. Here is a little video of an Alamo historian whistling El Deguello and telling a bit about it. Ignore the sound of the Texas wind, it´s always blowing.

I felt the same way about Antietam. You could feel the death in Bloody Lane. I was only a child and I felt it deeply.

The Alamo, not so much. I saw it in the 70s, and the whole city had been built up around it, making it seem pretty small and swallowed up. I understand that the state has spent a lot of money on the park and museum since then, so perhaps it is different now.

For interested people, one can see vintage photos from Antietam and other battlefields on the Parks Service website:


I just checked to see the status of Alamo Village, which was a fun destination back in the day, and learned that it has closed down due to the deaths of owners. It was the set where the John Wayne movie was filmed. I just read that Lomesome Dove was filmed there as well. It´s a shame that it closed, because it was more of a real Alamo experience than the actual shrine.

FTA: "Martin Vasquez grew up with the movie image of John Wayne as Crockett but has come to appreciate the dedication of Mexican soldiers who marched through snow during the grueling Texas campaign and charged at the Alamo with ladders and bayonets, prepared to die for their homeland."

The Mexican empire was established in 1821, a mere 15 years before the Alamo siege. Texas, particularly the area north and east of Bexar (San Antonio) to the US border, was not the "homeland" of the Mexican conscripts under Santa Anna, a brutal dictator who had already plunged the fledgling Mexican empire into civil war.

Native (and warring) Indian tribes were still the majority population but Anglos, at the invitation of Spain, had been flooding in prior to the creation of Mexico. The Mexican population was small, around 5,000, by comparison and many chose to side with the Texans. That is one reason why 42 Texas counties are named after those with Spanish surnames, like Garza, Zavalla, and Navarro.

Many who visit the Alamo may not realize that the remaining buildings are only a small part of what actually constituted the fort, primarily the chapel remains. Also, for those who enjoyed Bracketville, the village is not the same size as the original. It´s a 75% replication.

Many years ago Mrs. Know-It-All and I took a little "get away" trip to San Antonio for a couple of days. Ended up staying in the Emily Morgan Hotel right across the street from the Alamo. I could gaze out of our 6th floor window and look down on it. That was way cool.

And while we were there one evening I noticed lights and cameras being set up outside of the Alamo entrance. Turns out Robert Stack was there to film an intro to an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" that was about a treasure that was rumored to have been hidden by the defenders but never found.

That was one of the most enjoyable vacations I ever had.

The Travis letter is incredibly moving.

A great deal of nonsense about the Alamo has been spread by the politically correct left. They portray the formation of the Lone Star Republic as the theft of Mexican land by a bunch of racist Anglos--fifth columnists moving in from the USA.

Santa Anna headed a military junta that seized power after the elected president of Mexico was assassinated. Several other Mexican States (Yucatan and Sinaloa I believe- but my memory is failing)declared independence, besides Texas--they also didn´t want to live under a dictatorship headed by "the Napoleon of the New World"! A large contingent of Latinos were among the heroes who died at the Alamo.

Seen as a site of battle, folks expect the Valero Mission Chapel to be a fort,repletewith loopholes and cannonball marks.
It is a tomb, a solemn place.
Texas´ Revolution was about the constitution of Mexico, written in 1824, a fine document thrown out by the dictator Santa Anna.
Almost everyone involved with the actual paper and pen work of independence, including starting the original troubles down at the taxhouse at Anahuac, were lawyers.Everything was done with legal precision, requests were denied, rebellion declared by the numbers.
It as all done lawfully and we in these times ought to take heed of the US goverment´s LACK of legality vis-a-vis our own Constitution.
Still and quiet, the Cradle of Texas liberty stands, covering just a tiny part of the original Valero Mission grounds. Much like the area where Pickett charged in PA. one can feel the doom that waited for barely 200 men trying to man such a large enclosure.
Not many people even know the names of the saints once represented by statuary, in the niches out front.
When I was a kid, someone broke into the place and stole David Crockett´s possessions, and some guns and knives, by simply moving an airconditioner aside.
Things are far better these days...new roof long ago, a new stone replacing the broken one which allowed leakage,up by the left hand window cut by the Army in 1848-9.
It´s a serious place in the midst of a very commercial downtown....and we are lucky to have it still.

Santa Anna was the Mexican Obama.

History even suggests that he was not a native born Mexican.

Dozens of Republican senators joined Wednesday to demand that Harry Reid allow a floor vote on a new Iran sanctions bill. If he doesn’t, they are planning to make his life miserable. The Republican Senate caucus is planning to use every parliamentary trick in the book to push Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to allow a floor vote on a new Iran sanctions bill that the Obama administration strenuously opposes.

In light of Sunday’s open letter from Dylan Farrow, which resurfaced allegations that her adoptive father Woody Allen sexually assaulted her at age 7, the Internet continues to dig up disturbing stories about the celebrated writer and director’s relationship with children. Farrow coming forward follows a campaign by her mother, Mia, and brother, Ronan, to shine a brighter light on the accusations against Allen in the early nineties, around the time he left Mia for another of her adoptive daughters, Soon-Yi Previn, resulting in a hideous custody battle. Once considered tabloid scripture, the upsetting specifics had been largely forgotten, or

Russia has ramped up physical security for the Winter Olympics in Sochi – bringing some 50,000 members of law enforcement to the city – but it can do little to combat the deluge of cyber attacks experienced by visiting journalists and tourists. On last night’s broadcast of the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, journalist Richard Engel described an experiment he tried with a security expert when he first arrived in Sochi: We took two brand new computers out of their boxes and connected them to the internet.

ENVIRONMENTALISTS HAVE drawn a line in the sand on the Keystone XL pipeline. It’s the wrong line in the wrong sand, far away from any realistic assessment of the merits — as yet another government analysis has confirmed. It’s past time for President Obama to set aside politics and resolve this bizarre distraction of an issue. The State Department’s latest study — the product of more than five years of investigation — largely confirms the conclusions of previous assessments and those of many independent energy experts: Allowing the firm Trans­Canada to build Keystone XL, which would run across the Canadian border

Bill O’Reilly’s interview with Barack Obama before the Super Bowl proved as unstimulating as the game. O’Reilly had hyped the interview as the equivalent of a momentous boxing match. With characteristic humility, he said it would be like when “two boxers go into the center of the ring, that is exactly the way it is when an alpha interviews an alpha.” The most interesting question came not from O’Reilly but from a viewer, who wanted to know: “Mr. President, why do you feel it’s necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and success?” Obama rejected

For reasons too boring to go into, I have recently inherited custodial duties of the family dog. When Buster first arrived, more than a decade ago, we spent a fair amount of time together. I took responsibility for training him with a rigorous program lasting several weeks. To this day, if you ask him to fetch, sit, roll over, shake hands—any of your basic doggie tasks—he will instantly lie down and close his eyes. In the early days I walked him a lot too. Time passed. Work obtruded. My wife, at home with young children, became Buster’s primary care giver.

This week, as John Kerry marks a year at the helm of the State Department, almost everyone in the Mideast is angry at him, while much of Washington is puzzled. The Americans are trying to make sense of the secretary of state’s reported belief that President Obama needs a new Syria policy because the current one has failed. Isn’t it Kerry’s job to produce that policy? But first let’s handle the anger, which mostly turns on Kerry’s nonstop push for an Israel-Palestine accord. Kerry sees this as so crucial that he’s visited the area more than any other spot and created the

News that Obamacare would cause the economy to shed 2.3 million jobs is being greeted with jubilation by some quarters. This was foreseen long ago. FactCheck.Org pointed out even in 2011 that unemployment is not the right word for the loss of remunerative activities caused by the program. The word’s not “unemployment”. “That’s a distortion. CBO said some Americans would work less or leave their jobs if they can get health insurance outside the workplace.” It’s not a bug. It’s a feature. Employment is a prison, didn’t you know? Nancy Pelosi exults that breadwinners now can escape the confines of “job-lock”.

An attack on California electrical transformers in April is believed by some to be a practice round for a terrorist attack on the U.S. power grid. The coordinated attack began outside of Silicon Valley where attackers cut telephone wires at 1 a.m. on April 16, according to the Wall Street Journal. About half an hour later snipers shot at an electrical substation for about 19 minutes, destroying 17 transformers in the process. The attackers escaped before police arrived and remain at large. It took 27 days to repair the substation and crews had to reroute power around the site using Silicon Valley power

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer
