Remember the Alamo. . . .

William Travis: I have here pieces of paper, letters from politicians and generals, but no indication of when or if help will arrive. Letters not worth the ink committed to them. I fear that no one is coming. Texas has been a second chance for me. I expect that might be true for many of you as well. It has been a chance not only for land and riches! But also to be a different man. I hope a better one. There have been many ideas brought forth in the past few months of what Texas is and what it should become. We are not all in agreement. But I'd like to ask each of you what it is you value so highly that you are willing to fight and possibly die for. WE WILL CALL THAT TEXAS. The Mexican Army hopes to lure us into attempting escape. Almost anything seems better than remaining in this place, penned up. If, however, we force the enemy to attack I believe every one of you will prove himself Worth ten in return. We will not only show the world what patriots are made of, but we will also deal a crippling blow to the army of Santa Anna. If anyone wishes to depart under the white flag of surrender, you may do so now. You have that right. But if you wish to stay here with me in the Alamo WE WILL SELL OUR LIVES DEARLY.

 

The Alamo, 2004

 

Man I have to watch that movie again tonight.
