No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

   Correct me if I'm wrong.

My reading was that Gen Houston wanted Fannin and his troops to join up with him on his journey to East Texas (He also thought defending the Alamo was a waste of precious resources), Col Fannin, helping civilians escape Santa Anna (my forefathers), tried to leave Goliad but by then it was to late and he and his detachment were caught, surrendered and promptly executed.

Anyone visiting the Alamo should make the time to walk across the street into the Menger Hotel! It literally REEKS with history!  Teddy Roosevelt recruited Ruffriders in the bar downstairs!
