Sad News from the Alamo



On the 6th of March about midnight . . .

This photo shows a page from one of my most-used Texas history books . . . Texas Extra - A Newspaper History of the Lone Star State 1835-1935 . . . from the collection of Eric C. Caren . . . it apparently took until the 12th of April in the year 1836 for the news of the fall of the Alamo . . . on the 6th of March . . . to hit the pages of these New York newspapers . . .
