Long remembers the Alamo
I have stood on the street that was just a dirt lane that all the leaders of the Alamo traveled up and down every day: Lt. Colonel and Commanding Officer William Barret Travis, Colonel James Bowie, and honorary Colonel David Crockett. In fact, the hotel I’m staying in is on this path now known as Houston Street. I have to admit I’m a little confused about that because Houston was a wee bit late in showing up. But, he did have the overall picture in mind. He sacrificed the brave men at the Alamo for the bigger picture of winning Texas.
I’ll admit that I’ve always been curious about the Alamo, having grown up on Davy Crockett television shows, but when my good friend, Bard Selden, told me that I was actually kin to one of its heroes, my curiosity escalated. It seems that Mr. Cloud, who was a supervisor with my father, Paul Battle, told “Pop” how we were kin to Daniel William Cloud.
