9781456761813: The Cause of Liberty

At dawn, March 6, 1836, a vastly outnumbered group of settlers, patriots and mercenaries from the U.S. numbering less than 250 men, holed up in a crumbling adobe mission in South Central Texas, were defeated in battle by a force of over 3,000 Mexican soldiers under the command of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. The 13-day siege climaxed with an early morning assault that lasted about an hour and a half. Since the battle, it has become difficult to sort through the myth and legend that has followed. As compelling as the legend can be, the true story is every bit as inspiring and more often very revealing. The story concerns: The Texians fight for independence from Mexico.
