Davy Crockett: Courageous Hero of the Alamo
Enslow Publishing, LLC, Jan 1, 2013 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 48 pages
Hopelessly outnumbered, Davy Crockett and the defenders of the Alamo rallied around the battle cry, "Victory or Death." The courageous Texans chose to defend the fort in San Antonio against more than two thousand Mexican soldiers. Fighting for their freedom, the Texans were happy to have the well-known Tennessee backwoodsman on their side. And Crockett gave his life defending freedom. Although his brave deeds at the Alamo made him legendary, Crockett had already gained fame as a hunter, soldier, and U.S. Congressman. Authors William R. Sanford and Carl R. Green explore the life of this American hero.
