Regarding the Alamo:

“When Jim Bowie’s mother was informed of his death, she very calmly announced: “I’ll wager no wounds were found in his back.”


189 defenders of the Alamo died this day 177 years ago. They took a full third of the attacking force with them”

Not a bad way, if you ask me. I’d rather go peacefully in my sleep, but if that isn’t in the cards, then I’d rather go following their example. 

Ferryman’s fee and all that.
