Battle of the Alamo in "Lee at the Alamo"Edit
As Lt. Colonel Robert E. Lee prepared to make his own stand at the Alamo, this time against pro-Confederate Texas forces, the original Battle of the Alamo and the fate of her first defenders were constantly on his mind. Happily, the Confederate commander, Colonel Ben McCulloch, did not slaughter Lee's men, instead allowing them to surrender and leave the state.
