Happy birthday to legendary defender and hero at the Alamo, Davy Crockett!

Happy birthday to legendary defender and hero at the Alamo, Davy Crockett! ... See MoreSee Less

Yes, he died defending Texans' "right" to hold slaves, against the express legal decisions of the Mexican government. Good riddance.

Forget the Alamo, and Davy Crockett. He wasn’t a hero and the Alamo isn’t an inspirational story.

His family and friends always called him David. Davy was a derisive term used by his adversaries.

Happy birthday

When Representative Crocket left Congress for Texas he was going to join a non governmental militia. He was going to Texas to participate in a military filibuster. The reality is a bit different than the Texas mythology.

Happy Birthday

Thank you for sharing this!

Kind looks like Ted Cruz...

REMEMBER THE ALAMO

Stop praising slavers

How about you defend Texas' border?
