I take my hat off, and raise a dram to the memory of the 180 brave men who fought and died for freedom...

Just watched Sam Houston starring Sam Elliot. It was made in 1986 and I have never seen it before.The massacre scenes at the Alamo and Goliad reminds us all that freedom is not free,it made the ceremony at the Alamo that much more special..God bless the Republic and save us from the enemies within and without

I think I saw an ancient MacKay :). Great pics! I went there once when I lived in Austin and when you realize how small it is and how small the walls are, it makes what they were able to do that much more awe inspiring.

The old gentleman who gave the speech compared the defenders of the Alamo with the clansmen at Culloden. Men who gave their all in defense of a dream of freedom.
