March 2, 1836—Wednesday
The Mexicans have increased cannon bombardment to the walls if that is possible, and I don’t see how they keep standing with all they’ve taken. Don’t know if this means an attack is soon, or if Santa Anna knows we took in men yesterday and he’s sending a welcome. Either way, the damage to the walls is great and we are constantly working to shore them up.
[editors note: Unknown to the men in the Alamo, the signing of Texas Declaration of Independence took place on March 2, 1836, at Washington-on-the-Brazos.]
