The Women and Children of the Alamo

By Crystal Sasse Ragsdale

The riveting story of the Alamo ends in tragedy with no brave defender left alive to tell his tale, but there were others who did survive the final massacre—more than a dozen women and children. The thirteen days of the siege and fall of the Alamo have been studied, examined, probed, and researched by students and historians for over 150 years, but here is the Alamo's story by the ones who were there.

CRYSTAL SASSE RAGSDALE, a research historian and authority on 19th-century Texas, is the author of Women and Children of the Alamo and Texas Women: Frontier to Future, both by State House Press, and has also served on numerous editorial boards of organizations around the Lone Star State.
