Historical Setting: Texas, 1836 A. D.

This anthology focuses on the brief but crucial span of a little over six weeks following the fall of the Alamo. That interval culminated on April 21, 1836, in the battle of San Jacinto in which the Texans under Sam Houston defeated Santa Anna's Mexican forces. The editor's introduction provides an overview, while the selections bring the reader the pivotal events in the words of participants.
