Publisher's Summary

They were fighting for Texas - fighting for the land they called home. For 12 long days the men, women and children inside an old mission known as The Alamo defended it against the soldiers who surrounded them. But President Santa Anna was just as determined to keep Texas part of Mexico and vowed there would be no mercy for them. The Texans waited for a rescue in terms of men and supplies - but no help came. Finally, in the pre-dawn darkness of March 6, 1836, thousands of Mexican soldiers poured over the walls and the gruesome battle that followed proved to be a turning point in American history.

This gripping story is told through the eyes of two real-life survivors of the siege and battle: eight-year-old Enrique Esparza and Susanna Dickinson. Learn the fascinating story behind that famous battle cry, “Remember the Alamo!” (Recommended for Grades 4 through 6.)

    "Everything Happens In A Big Way In Texas!"

    A short, quick and concise narrative about the Battle of the Alamo. Pretty insightful and exciting, and the author does a good job of narrating the story to us.

    For history buffs and non-history buffs alike, this would be a quick easy read for you to understand what happened at the Alamo.
