Battle for the Alamo

It was on this day, March 6, 1836 that Battle of the Alamo was fought in the war for Texas independence.

The Alamo (Spanish for the Cottonwood tree) was occupied by Mexican forces almost continuously until December 1835, when it was surrendered to Texan forces by General Martín Perfecto de Cos during the Texas Revolution. Two months later, on February 23, 1836, Lieutenant Colonel William B. Travis entered the Alamo with a force that later totaled approximately 187 men to defend it against the advance of the Mexican army. Approximately 6,000 Mexican soldiers under the command of General Antonio López de Santa Anna laid siege to the fortress for 13 days. The siege climaxed on March 6 and resulted in the death of all of the Texan defenders. Being cornered, the last defenders of the Alamo surrendered, then were shot. Mexican casualties probably amounted to approximately 200 killed and 400 wounded.

I am feeling much better than I did last week I appreciate the prayers from everyone. Everyone here went through quite a bout with this flu and we even had to close the office for a couple of days.

We are all back to normal although we had gotten behind in our work but have it about caught up also. I received several calls today from folks planning to attend our Faith & Freedom Conference. So that is exciting. This will be a great opportunity for you to come and meet Don Black, Paul Fromm and other great leaders in this movement for White Christian Revival. This conference is still about a month away so you have time to make arrangements.

I have been working on my Sunday morning sermon and will title it, What Is My Duty!. I hope you will turn in to Stormfront Radio on Sunday at 12 pm ET and 11 am CT.
