OTD William B. Travis sent his famous letter from the Alamo. It etched in history the legacy of Texans willing to die for independence. May we never lose hunger for the freedom for which Texas stands. God Bless Texas. #VictoryOrDeath #txlege

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

Texas has a great story; one of many such stories of this great nation.

As a graduate of William B. Travis high school, this is really good stuff.

Hard to believe he sacrificed himself at only 26 years old.
Yearning to stay free takes place in many ways at many different times, whether by withstanding planes or bayonets
