Sample text

1 The committee, comprised of Austin Colony's prominent settlers, did not include James Fannin. By July these resolutions had resulted in other Anglo colonies organizing and a general call for a consultation of all municipalities on July 14 at San Felipe. At that meeting, the demand for a consultation of all Texans was defeated, and the general tone was conciliatory toward Mexican authorities. They did, however, call for two representatives to Page 29 negotiate with Santa Anna's brother-in-law, General Martin Perfecto de Cos.

Angered over the arrest of a colonist there, several Texans including William Barret Travis captured the Mexican fort and customshouse and forced the evacuation of Mexican soldiers.

As a Texas hero, he has not been treated kindly with the passage of time. His place in Texas history has always been relegated to a footnote for the Alamo martyrs and the victory at San Jacinto. Unfairly, he is remembered as the commander who lost twice as many men as were killed at the Alamo and San Jacinto combined. Texas has not been willing to forget him, but historians have not hesitated to label him with negative terms: Blind ambition, indecision, lack of strategy, underestimation of the enemy, reliance upon "councils of war," and lack of attention to crucial details quickly come to mind.
