13 Days of Glory...

9 posts in this topic

In the southern part of Texas, near the town of San Antone,

There's a fortress all in ruins that the weeds have overgrown,

You may look in vain for crosses and you'll never see a one,

But sometime between the setting and the rising of the sun,

You can hear a ghostly bugle as the men go marching by,

You can hear them as they answer to their old call in the sky...

...Colonel Travis, Davy Crockett an' a hun'red eighty more,

Captain Dickinson, Jim Bowie, present and accounted for!

185, holdin' back 5000,

5 days, 6 days, 8 days, 10,

Travis held and held again...

...Twice they charged and blew recall,

On the fatal third time, Santa Anna breached the wall,

And he killed them one and all.

In the southern part of Texas, near the town of San Antone,

Like a statue on his pinto stands a cowboy all alone,

And he sees the cattle grazin' where a century before,

Santa Anna's guns were blazin' and the cannons used to roar,

And his eyes turn sorta misty, and his heart begins to glow,

And he takes his hat off slowly to the men of Alamo,

To the 13 days of glory,

At the siege of Alamo.

The whole presentation is so nicely done and well thought out. Plus there is the howitzer...I thought it was British to be exact. :pir-wink: Beautiful design. Great sequences.

Nice fortress - simple yet effective! :thumbup: (and, of course, the howitzer is great)

Is that guy getting hoisted by a petard, or is it a cannonball coming in?

And is the song the same tune as the Battle of New Orleans?

I like your fortress. Was it inspired by the Alamo at all?

Thanks, yes, it is the Alamo. :pir-classic:

That's a cannonball.

It's not the same tune, you can listen to the song Here. :pir-sweet:
