On This Date in 1836

Remember the Alamo!
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

And on the 8th day he made Texas and it was good...

300th anniversary of the Alamo this year I believe. Went to SA in January. A lot of history there that some Texans don’t even know about.

My brain works strangely at times, or so I have been told. :biggrinjester:

Today is the 182nd anniversary of the date of the fall of Alamo. Interestingly, today is not the 182nd anniversary of the 13th day of the siege. 1836 was a leap year, so February had 29 days. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the 13th day of the siege. March 6 is the date of the fall of Alamo, so today we celebrate the lives and deaths of those Texicans who came before us.

I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

I celebrate the sacrifices of the men who gave me a place to call home.

I am determined to sustain myself as long as

possible & die like a soldier

who never forgets what is due to

his own honor & that of his

country—Victory or Death
