This just in from Woody:
A reminder. Today in 1836 at San Antonio, Texas, 186 Texian heroes died at the battle of the Alamo mission. This incident in our history has been compared to the battle of Thermopylae at which the Spartans, under Leonidas, also fought bravely to the death. Those 186 brave men spent their lives to buy the time General Sam Houston desperately needed and walked in spirit beside the Texian soldiers who routed Santa Anna's troops on 21 April 1836 at San Jacinto.
Take a little time today to remember those men and to thank them for their sacrifice.
