In 1836, during the Texas Revolution, about 189 Texans defended the Alamo against the Mexican army. Some of the defenders of the Alamo were Mexicans who lived in Texas and supported Texas independence. One of these Tejanos was Gregorio Esparza. This moving tale of a man who chose his country and chose to die defending it is filled with fascinating details of early 19th century life and little-known nuances of the battle of the Alamo.
