Thirteen Fateful Days In 1836

Along with the ducks, Stone, Abby Gail and I had our morning meal along the Riverwalk prior to our stroll to the Alamo.  With the sun shining and the temps warm we enjoyed a lazy breakfast on the patio.  Choosing to be healthy, Abby Gail ordered the yogurt/granola with fruit, and I a bowl of fruit.    Stone on the other hand had the french toast with bacon which looked amazing.  Polishing off our food we meander over to the Alamo.
The data surrounding the siege of the Alamo continues to be questioned, there is no confusion about what the battle has come to exemplify.   People worldwide continue to recall the Alamo as a courageous battle against overwhelming odds, a place where men made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.  For this reason the Alamo remains sacred ground and the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
