From Lt. Col. William Travis at The Alamo…
“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 and everything dear to the American Character, to come to our aid with all despatch…If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honour and that of his country. Victory or Death.”
That is my attitude.
