Historical Sketch and Guide to the Alamo

Excerpt from Historical Sketch and Guide to the Alamo The history of Texas has been recorded in the blood of its martyrs. The Lexington of the American revolution had its counterpart in the Alamo; San Jacinto was the York-town of the Lone Star. Naturally, the greater American revolt was greater by virtue of the greatness of the interests involved; but the struggles, defeats and success of the Texas wars for independence are thrilling in interest and equally as illustrative of the courage, fortitude and self-denial of the American pioneer as those which characterized the contest between the American colonies and England. In that contest an Anglo-Saxon foe pursued a civilized warfare. In the Texas revolution the enemy was a Latin. Too often was his side of it waged upon the principle that "all is fair in love and war," massacre, rapine and arson weaving their red thread throughout the course of the struggle.
