From the Alamo—Santa Anna Crosses Rio Grande

February 16, 1836—Tuesday

A rider came into camp late today. After reporting to Colonel Travis, we all gathered around to get the latest news. It’s not good news—Santa Anna has crossed the Rio Grande and is headed north with a large army.

Travis sent out a rider a few days ago with a letter for Fannin requesting men and supplies. All we can do now is wait for reinforcements from Fannin.
