    The official Alamo website tries to correct the persistent myth that everyone died at the Alamo. “It is true that nearly all of the Texans under arms inside the fort were killed in the March 6, 1836, attack. However, nearly twenty women and children, who experienced the twelve days of siege leading to the final assault, were spared and allowed to return to their homes." Also spared were the slave of William Travis, named Joe and Susanna Dickinson. See official website for more.

    The Heart of a Texan

    Did you know that in 1836, Texans used a route named El Camino Real de los Tejas (The Royal Road of Texas) to flee from Santa Anna in the Runaway Scrape? Had no idea where the street name came from

    James Black... Arkansas blacksmith and creator of the original Bowie knife designed by Jim Bowie. Bowie was already famous for knife-fighting from his 1827 sandbar duel. But his killing of three assassins in Texas and death at the Alamo made him, and the blacksmith’s knife, legends. Black’s knives were exceedingly tough yet flexible. He kept his knife making methods secret, even doing his work behind a leather curtain. James Black’s knives cannot be duplicated even today.
