If you don't like a particular Alamo history, make up your own. Most everybody else did.
It wasn't even a fort. It was a Catholic Mission.
Houston made them all Colonels huh? Now who is making up history? Any other neat facts on the Battle of the Alamo you'd like to share with us?

Which is pretty much what is going to happen. He will plead guilty to the lesser charges and be fined. Of course these fines are almost impossible to collect.

True that! Now Gerry and I are defending the Alamo side by side!
