IN 1955 Bobby and I went to the Saturday Matinee to see the latest movie. The Alamo starring Fess parker as Davey Crocket. Fifty Seven Years Later we finally got our Davey Crocket Coon Skin Caps and Visited the ALAMO.
The Trio outside the fort.
Scotland was represented during the Texas Revolution by 4 pioneers of Scots Birth:
John McGregor, Richard W Ballantine, Isaac Robinson and David L Wilson all died at the hands of a 3,000-strong Mexican army.
We put our Coonskin Caps back in the car for safe keeping and off to walk the Riverwalk.
