"Two hundred Americans held off more than two thousand soldiers of the Mexican Army for twelve days before defeat. Only two Texans survived. The siege was a crucial turning point in the Texas Revolution, and led to the creation of the Republic of Texas. How many kids even knew there was a Republic of Texas? Now they will! With 80 black-and-white illustrations throughout and a sixteen-page black-and-white photo insert, young readers will relive the battle at the Alamo!"-- Provided by publisher.
