DEEP IN THE HEART OF INGRATITUDE
The heroic Alamo defenders included fighters from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia,Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina,Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.
Here's just one example: Andrew Jackson Sowell came to Bexar and the Alamo from Tennessee in advance of Col. Bowie as a scout and forager He was scouting when the Mexican army attacked. He couldn't get back to the Alamo so he attacked the Mexicans as they repositioned.. He seized the Gonzales cannon and survived. He settled in Texas and later became a decorated Texas Ranger.
(Note: there were also fighters from England, Germany, France, Ireland and Denmark.)
So, having been assisted in their finest hour by heroic fighters from all over the United States, these ingrate dickweeds want to freaking secede. I guess they don't get the whole "Provide for the Common Defense" thang.
Men like, Bowie, Crockett and Sowell who came from all over this land to stand with you, say, "You're welcome, Assholes."
