Remember the Alamo? Texans got their asses kicked there too.

If there'd been a back door to the Alamo, Texas would be a Mexican state today, and everybody would be a lot better off.

Yeah. Our rainy day fund is making the other states look bad.....

Are they really succeeding from the United States? Reestablishing the Texas Republic like the good old days? Can we help pack their bags? Will they take that carpet bagger Bush family with them?

to bad after the war of 1848 our ambasitor heard he was being replaced and hurryed up the peace settlement. would have been a lot better off is we'd have taken every thing down to and includding the yucatan. and the mexicans would have been a lot better off also

I wonder if fanning had just come with say 200 men and not tried to bring artillery if that would have held the Alamo long enough for houston to arrive with his army

intresting to ponder how Texas history would have been with out the " runaway scrape"

The Alamo was not the only fort lost.
It's just the one most remember.

And to answer your question above. I don't think an extra 200 men would have made a difference. The battle may have lasted a bit longer but the outcome would have been the same.

IIRC, all but one elected to stay. A Frenchman named Rose left, I suspect to try to bring back reinforcements.
