On March 6, 1836, the Alamo fell after a thirteen-day siege by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna and his Mexican army. The fall of the mission ranks as one of the most recognizable events in American history. Rendezvous at the Alamo presents capsule biographies of three prominent historical figures at the Alamo: Jim Bowie, William Barret Travis, and Davy Crockett. Using diaries, personal letters, eyewitness accounts, and a wealth of secondary souce material, Virgil E. Baugh describes the varied lives of the three and shows how each ended up at the Alamo. In spite of their fame, all three men had been dogged by frustration and failure, but in death their immortality was insured."
