The Alamo's forgotten defenders :
the remarkable story of the Irish during the Texas Revolution /
Phillip Thomas Tucker.
|Main Creator:||Tucker, Phillip Thomas, 1953-, author.|
"Within the annals of Alamo and Texas Revolutionary historiography, the important contributions of the Irish in winning the struggle against Mexico and establishing a new republic are noticeably absent. Breaking new ground with fresh views and original insights, Phillip Thomas Tucker’s The Forgotten Defenders of the Alamo: The Irish of the Texas Revolution, 1835-1836, sets forth one of the best remaining untold stories of the Alamo and Texas Revolution by exploring a largely forgotten and long ignored history: the dramatic saga of the Irish in Texas." -- publisher.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 155-162) and index.
