Ausing me to drive onto the sidewalk I don t want to see it yet I shouted back gripping the wheel We parked our car checked into the hotel and then headed out But I wasn t Blessed Are the Wicked ready to see it yet I wanted to prepare myself So we went to the River Walk and sat down at the Republic of Texas Restaurant which appeared to be the most touristy establishment of a fairly touristy location Something you should know about me When I am a tourist I embrace it Immediately we ordered two 42 ounce margaritas And I drank one and a half Them Alamo Prep August Alamo prep August we went to the Alamo It was simultaneously everything I d hoped it would be and also a colossal disappointment It is absolutely tiny making it at once intimate and embraceable but also aeminder that most of the historical mission has been destroyed part of it by the victorious Mexican Army most of it by the unrelenting creep of progress The Alamo site "is a mass of contradictions The church with its famous though not "a mass of contradictions The church with its famous though not bell shaped fa ade is eferred to as a Shrine You can t wear a hat inside or take pictures meaning I don t ecall any of the andom exhibits they had on display However despite the veneration euired of visitors to the church you can still buy an overpriced coonskin cap in the massive souvenir shop or a snow cone from the vendor out front and it s hard to imagine the west wall when it has been taken up by a Ripley s Believe it or Not First time at the Alamo August 2010 Note the margarita flush courtesy of the Republic of Texas Restaurant The present state of the Alamo un by the Daughters of the Texas Revolution is covered in the concluding pages of JR Edmondson s The Alamo Story From Early History to Current Conflicts It is an appropriate conclusion to his thorough look at the Alamo s tumultuous existence demonstrating that the centuries old struggle for the former Spanish mission encompassed not only its physical being but also a fight to define its meaning The Alamo is a powerful symbol not of one thing but many things depending on who you are and what you believe Edmonson is very upfront about what he believes and he explains himself in the first couple pages For him the Alamo defenders were heroes who gave a magnificent sacrifice in their 13 day defense of the beleaguered fortress in 1836 What follows then is a labor of love almost a paean to chivalric notions such as death before dishonor Yet Edmondson is also careful about interpreting historical sources ecognizing time and again the fact that many of the Alamo legends lack veracity The Reform, Red Scare, and Ruin result is a book in conflict with itself a tug of war between hero worship and primary documents between what likely happened and what the author wished happened This does not make for a badead To the contrary I found the tension to be interesting if at times frustrating At 424 pages of text this is a fairly decent sized chunk of history Edmondson divides his story into four Xas Revolution was the first step in Mexican President Antonio Lpez de Santa Anna's attempt to Grauwacht retake the province of Texas after an insurgent army of Texian settlers The True Story Of The Battle Of The Alamo That Discover the true story of the Battle of the Alamo that marked a turning point in the Texas Revolution in How some Texans fought off nearly Mexicans before finally falling at the historic fort known as the Alamo The Alamo Story – Before the Battle of the The Alamo story that you have never heard By Brian A Crandall Located in modern downtown San Antonio Texas there happens to be a tiny abandoned Catholic chapel of Spanish American architecture Straddled by tall buildings a tourist friendlyiverwalk and the Alamodome former venue of the San Antonio Spurs it is a elic of the past that has managed to survive despite never having Truth behind the legend of the Alamo examined | The story of the battle has become an enduring piece of American folklore But how much of the legend is fact and how much is myth?

Arts The first part covers the founding of Alamo mission by "Spain As Well As "as well as s War of Independence The second part devoted to Mexico s struggle to form a lasting government with Santa Anna hopping daintily between federalism and centralism and to keep Texas swarming with Anglo immigrants part of the fold Part three deals with the Texas Revolution and introduces key players such as Alamo commander William B Travis Edmondson s mini bio is great since it elies heavily on Travis s extremely saucy diary entries the poor guy likely died with a venereal disease Alamo defender David Crockett you might have heard of him and failed savior James Fannin the unfortunate Fannin who admitted his own incompetence to anyone who d listen eventually surrendered his army and was executed along with most of his troops on Palm Sunday 1836 The final section is the grand finale the Alamo siege and battle lasting from February 23 to March 6 Edmondson has a chapter For Each Day Letting You Know What Happened Not Only each day letting you know what happened not only the Alamo but at other parts of Texas as well I found this approach super helpful in keeping events straight and in showing all the moving pieces in concert Probably the coolest thing about The Alamo Story is how Edmondson ends each of his four major sections with a chapter called Myths Mysteries and Misconceptions In what could pass for an Alamo FA Edmondson discusses the truth behind various legends as well as answering burning uestions For example following the chapter on the battle Edmondson discusses certain hot button topics such as Mexican casualties Crockett s death and whether or not certain defenders attempted to escape While the first three parts of The Alamo Story were helpful I have found better written accounts elsewhere TR Fehrenbach and Stephen Hardin have tilled this soil Edmondson s denouement though is astounding His narrative of the final battle in the dark and cold dawn on March 6 is among the best I ve ead It is exciting gripping and presents an extremely plausible flow of battle I do have a bit of he For the most part I found this a very eadable book The author takes the history of the Alamo from the time of it s building as a mission through modern day I found the beginning much harder to The Fashion Industry and Its Careers: An Introduction read than the part about the Revolution He talked about a lot of people that I d never heard of which made it hard to keep them all straight However I found myself almost as wrapped up in the siege days as I have in many novels I LOVED the sections that he does on myths mysteries and misconceptions On some of the legends he presents all sides of the story He never draws his own conclusions he leaves that to theeader He just presents why different people said different things about the battle and its participants I ecommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about the Alamo Good book with lots of smaller facts and events that occured at the hallowed place in Texas histor.
