Author Dr. Phillip Thomas Tucker Shares His Dissection of a Myth: Last Stand at the Alamo


Author Dr. Phillip Thomas Tucker shares his extensive knowledge and analysis of one of America’s famous battles, in his book “Exodus from the Alamo: The Anatomy of the Last Stand Myth.”

Different from the history books and movies that taught us that the defenders of the Alamo in the war for Texan independence including Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William B. Travis did not die under brilliant sunlight, defending their positions against hordes of Mexican infantry. The author’s featured alternative views of how and why the battle was fought are intriguing to say the least, and challenging for those of us who were fed the mainstream versions of this history. For instance, most standard history texts make no mention of how the issue of slavery was an important part of the Alamo battle. Dr. Tucker actually focuses on this aspect of the confrontation and shows how racial animosity among blacks, whites and Mexicans was an integral part of the scenario leading up to the Alamo fighting.
In his book, Dr. Tucker, after deep research into recently discovered Mexican accounts and the forensic evidence, informs us that the traditional myth of the Alamo is even more off-base: most of the Alamo’s defenders died in breakouts from the fort, cut down by Santa Anna’s cavalry that had been pre-positioned to intercept the escapees.
The author goes into detail about the senseless loss of life by the low-ranked fighters on both sides. While the romantic fairy tale of the Alamo that we learned in grade-school is a wonderful story, the reality is much more depressing.
Read the book to get to know more of the actual events from this compelling and intriguing update from America’s past.
