T.D.I.H. - Mar 6

On this day in history, Gen. Santa Ana of Mexico captured the Alamo after a short seige. The Mexican Army killed all of the defenders, including those who tried to surrender. The defeat became a rallying cry among the Americans and Tejanos in Texas fighting for independence. Among the dead were Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, famous American frontiersmen.
