Holding a special place in US history, the Battle of the Alamo (1836) is revered as an example of patriotism and sacrifice in the face of great odds. With a contingent of less than 200 men, co-commander and South Carolinian William Barret Travis held the vastly more numerous Mexican troops at bay during a thirteen-day siege. All but two of the defenders perished in the ensuing onslaught, including a total of seven men from our state. Travis is known for his eloquent letter, To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World.
