LINK We've Been Telling the Alamo Story Wrong for Nearly 200 Years. Now It's Time to Correct the Record

I lost some friends who would not accept CORRECTION culture. They did not read much except The National Enquire, so I bailed on these folks.....decades ago.

What are the benefits and costs of fake history? Of fake news? BTW, let’s give Texas back to Mexico.

Too bad! Texas is part of the United States since 1844. San Antonio is part of the United States and isn't going anywhere. History is written by the victors.

One of my professors at University of Houston, did a great book back in 1982 ,Juan Davis Bradburn: A Reappraisal of the Mexican Commander of Anahuac
by Margaret Swett Henson. She did her research both in the US and Mexico. She also taught women in American History. Quite the revisionist and a damned good teacher.

Here in Texas most of us have heard this version, Most just did not pay attention to the Mexican side. I have believed it. It has more witnesses. All about slavery as most things were in that period.

Sickening, but unsurprising. Another chapter in Zinn's America.

I can see how a book with a title like "Forget The Alamo" would raise a few hackles in Texas.
