"I looked to the west and saw the soldados moving like a wave into our position. Men were kneeling and firing. Others were swinging their empty rifles or wielding their knives. Regardless, they began to fall quickly. Screams of rage and pain tore through the early morning air." William Patton rode to Texas with his uncle, David Crockett. They came to start a new life and build a new country. Will wanted nothing more than to settle into a comfortable life with his wife. Instead, he became part of the founding of Texas. In the brief battle of the Alamo, hundreds of men were slaughtered. Bodies lay strewn about the old mission. Yet there was one, hidden among the debris, who was still alive. This is his story. Terry Green retells the gripping story of Patton and his life in Texas in The Shadow of Great Men.
