Remember the Alamo! is a tale of extraordinary courage and riveting adventure. For thirteen days, 189 men led by Davy Crockett, Colonel Jim Bowie, and Colonel William Travis and hopelessly outnumbered, held off the Mexican army led by General Santa Anna at the Mission San Antonio de Valero -- the Alamo. Their valiant sacrifice for the cause of Texas liberty became the rallying cry, "Remember the Alamo!" Remember the Alamo! is the landmark account of one of the most extraordinary moments in American frontier history. It is written by one of America's greatest authors, Robert Penn Warren, the winner of three Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom -- our nation's highest civilian award.
