    The Alamo

    Hoyt portrayed of the Alamo was fun and interesting to read.The use of illustrations made the book easy on the eye. One important detail that I liked, was the fact that Hoyt provided the reader with short biographies on important people during the Alamo. Hoyt acknowledges all the aspects that lead to the Fall of the Alamo and what happened after.
