“...what it must have been like to watch the Patriots turn against and expose the Crown...”
Imagine what it must have been like to BE one of the Patriots who stood up, and then watch people you’ve known and worked with for years suddenly cower in fear and turn away from you...and still others that you know are actually running up the road to warn the British Regulars that you are standing at Lexington Green waiting for them.
Imagine being a Texican at the Alamo, standing on the ramparts thinking there are allies climbing up next to you, and then you realize “WTF!?! I’m up here ALONE?” as Santa Ana’s Mexicans are swarming towards you.
One guy stood up...and he catches flak... just amazing.
And this morning they are surrounded by the Brutus who dined while they fought last night.
Yesterday was the 177th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo.
