Happy Texas Independence Day!

Commandancy of the Alamo
Bexar, Feby. 24th 1836

To the People of Texas & all Americans in the world --

Fellow citizens & compatriots --

I am besieged by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna --

I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man --

The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken --

I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls --

I shall never surrender or retreat.

Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch --

The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country --

Victory or Death.

William Barret Travis
Lt. Col. Comdt.

P.S. The Lord is on our side -- When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn -- We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels & got into the walls 20 or 30 heads of Beeves.
