Victory or Death!

Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna awoke a sleeping giant 175 years ago today when he attacked the Alamo.

In part we have Santa Anna to thank for Texan’s rugged spirit of individualism and independence that makes Texas uniquie compared to the rest of the States.

Here is to another 175 years of rugged individualism in Texas!  As Colonel William Barrett Travis put in in his famous letter penned from the ramparts of the Alamo,

I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor and that of his country — Victory or Death.
