Davy Crockett: Coward

Now that most recent scholarship substantiates that Davy Crockett was a coward who died while pleading for his life and attempting to cut deals with the Mexicans, who are some of the Alamo-related historical figures who can stand as true heroes for us Texans? In my opinion it's important that the general public be spiritedly involved in drafting our state's heritage. Shedding light on truly heroic biographies at the Alamo is of pivotal importance.

Texas was signed over to Sam Houston by General Santa Ana, no Mexican General was ever allowed that authority. In other words it was never a valid treaty because the President of Mexico was not involved but it has been so long and at the time the Mexican army could do next to nothing because the Spaniard general was a moron and lost all their men in the area making it almost impossible to strike back. Sam Houston declared Texas independence and soon the Mexican American War began.

None the less it is good tourist attraction for us.

I can see zapata being a Hero in mexico, but how do you come up with cesar chavez as a hero? yes he did do good things for the migrant, but I don't think that comes to the status of hero.

If the "Real" story of the Alamo ever came about why there was even a fight, some people would be very surprised. Maybe they already know........but

What a Pile of Garbage!
First there is no reputable evidence that David Crockett was captured alive and it's very unlikely that he would be or that any Mexican would have recognized him as David Crockett.

Second, what would he have been doing at the Alamo if he had been a coward?
It's utterly insane to imagine that a coward wouldn't have deserted the Alamo at the first sign of Santa Anna's army closing in.

Third, the entire notion that Santa Anna didn't have the Authority to sign over Texas is absolute NONSENSE! Santa Anna wasn't just some Mexican General. He was the absolute ruler/dictator of Mexico. He had already overturned the Mexican Constitution of 1824
and centralized the government to Mexico City.

As for the Moral Authority of the Texas Republic, the right of conquest was the law of the time, plus the Mexican's had taken Texas from Spain and Spain had taken it from the Indians with far less Moral Authority.

When the U.S. agreed to Annexing Texas, Mexico declared war on the United States.
After being soundly beaten into submission by the U.S. military under the command of General Winfield Scott , the U.S. government still paid the government of Mexico in Gold for all the Mexican land north of the Rio Grand. Neither Spain nor Mexico had ever paid the previous owners of that land (the Indians) and the U.S. could have taken it by force of arms alone.

So shove your liberal anti American whining where the Sun Don't Shine.
