    Ronnie, for years I avoided the tour. I am well versed in the reality of the Texas Revolution. Besides, most of the battle ground has been turned into a major street. . . No, Travis was not a Kerry supporter. Kerry showed far more sense in combat than to waste his entire command for nothing. Texas barely survived the two idiots Travis and Fannin. The men who delayed Santa Anna were Johnson and Seguin. The man who beat him was Sam Houston, the same guy who ordered Travis to withdraw from San Antonio. Sorry you live in a world of mythology. Sorry you can only draw delusions from history. Sam Houston would have LOVED to have the artillery given to Mexico by the idiots Travis and Fannin for his victory at San Jacinto. But then he knew how to win, and they only knew how to lose. Next time you are in Texas go to Golidad and visit the Fannin 'battle ground." See how a dithering idiot can lose by doing nothing right.
