I’m surprised all you Texans failed to remember:

Today was the day, 182 years ago, that the folks at the Alamo made their last stand,

Their actions gave Sam Houston’s army time to prepare at San Jacinto.

I’ve been to the Alamo….long ago, when I was but a child. It is tiny, and crude, and yet, it gave the men a spot to rally. They may have lost their lives, but they won much more than that. I found it a solemn place, and will always remember it with reverence.

If you live in Texas, and love it, remember this day. Men gave their lives for the birthing Republic.

Had they not stood, you might be speaking Spanish and living under a different flag today.
