-Immortal 32-

32 Texian Militia men from the Gonzales Ranger Company were the only souls to answer Colonel Travis's resolute Alamo defense letter, "To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World". The famed battle cry, "Victory or Death" fortified them as they fought their way into the burning Alamo, empirically defending Texas Liberty.
