Diggin Up Missing Persons Bones South Central Texas

A very inspiring story of bravery and commitment is the battle of the Alamo on the day Col. [Randy] Travis drew a line in the sand, asking the 200 defenders to cross and stand against Santa Anna would be death, but would give time for General Houston to gain the time he needed. 

The Line In Sand



A very inspiring story of bravery and commitment is the battle of the Alamo on the day Col. Travis drew a line in the sand, asking the 200 defenders to cross and stand against Santa Anna would be death, but would give time for General Houston to gain the time he needed. 

Me? I would not know if this story to be true. Travis ordered me to deliver a message to General Houston, and his choice was not based on what he told me, "You are light agile and the fastest rider we have." 

"Mount your pony and let no man stand in your way." 

I resisted, overhearing Col. Travis and the other men talking about me, not wanting a sixteen year old boy to die with them. Travis pulled his pistol and ordered me, "Mount that horse or die where you stand."

I placed the letter inside my shirt deep and jerk the reins as my mount, jumped and cleared the wall of the Alamo, “Never looking back to see if my friends had come.”

After delivering the message waiting in the Robert E. Lee Hotel lobby; a bell hop drops a note in my lap, "You don't lead enough organized crime to be consider effective." 

Good! They Got Something Right!
