Overview

Originally published in 1931, The Alamo Defenders is the culmination of almost a decade's worth of Alamo research, and is the foundation upon which most later works addressing the subject of the souls who occupied the Alamo during the siege. Omitting much of the romance, legend and myth associated with the storied fortress, The Alamo Defenders calls forth the facts, gleaned from letters and primary documents, to bring us closer to those who served with Travis. The roll of Alamo victims has changed only slightly since Ms. Williams conducted her research nearly 75 years ago, and her work remains a valuable research tool and starting point for Alamo studies today. Includes data on 187 Alamo defenders, as well as messengers. Footnotes and bibliography.
