Thirteen Days Under Siege
The Westward Sagas weekly blog posts will become more frequent during the days of the “Siege of the Alamo” February 23-March 6. I feel that it is important that those of us who were fortunate enough to have been born and educated in Texas share our knowledge of Texas history.
The post will simply read like the headlines of a newspaper or as in the days of the Republic, a broad sheet posted on a mesquite tree. Like my regular blogs, they will be short and an easy read. I hope they provide readers an understanding of why the Alamo is a sacred shrine to all Texans. I hope you will participate by posting your comments on my website.
