From the Alamo—“Live” reports as they happen

I have made the decision to "Live" blog from the Alamo mission in San Antonio de Bexar for the next few weeks. For the purpose of this narrative, I will assume the purely fictional character of Andrew J. Williams. He is a volunteer who arrived at the mission with Jim Bowie on January 19, 1836, and this will be his journal.

The journal entries will reflect just the information that Williams would have access to on the day of writing, and I will begin it with From the Alamo—+ the event of the day. This cannot be a complete overview, but merely the personal observations of one man. Because of this, there is historical information that will not be included, but it won’t affect the outcome.

I have gathered information from many reliable resources, and corroborated as much as I can.  To help me keep event in order, I created a huge Mind Map and will share it with you later.

I hope you find this creative and interesting enough to share with your friends and family.
