One-Hundred & Eighty Three men, described alternately as being brave defenders of liberty or as a motley collection of vagabonds, land thieves, swindlers, and slave holders, waiting desperately for relief from fellow Texans that was destined never to
arrive. Holed up in a broken down mission, converted into an undermanned fortress, low on ammunition, and surrounded by as many as 4000 trained Mexican troops ... their resolve remained strong. Led admirably, almost in a surreal fashion, by Colonel
William Barret Travis, and boasting legends, even in their day, like Davy Crockett & Jim Bowie, among their number, they withstood a siege of thirteen long days in February and March of 1836 in the barren Texas landscape, until they could stand no more
and crumbled under an all-out assault in the darkness of a cool, March morning. It was, in fact, Thirteen Days To Glory!
