in memory of the 32 men of gonzales...the only responders to travis's plea...

"one, a lad of but sixteen, was the bravest of them all, for he fought after his weapons were useless. he died throttling an antagonist, not relaxing his grip on the latter's throat even when death seized the boy. he and his foe died together..they had to tear the boy's hands from the throat of his assailant". -historian charles burns

On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and walked from his bunk on the floor of the Alamo up to the observation post on the west wall. William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were up there already. The three gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving steadily towards them.


Davy turned to Bowie with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "Jim, are we pouring concrete today?"
