One of the few times had all the right answers.?
The quizzes tend to be good history lessons , see how much we remember from school.( when they actually taught American history)

Re: question ten, I was taught in school that Colonel William Travis was the leader of the defenders at the Alamo. Davy Crockett held the same rank as Colonel Travis and James Bowie. What I just looked up and found is that a man named William B. Harrison is listed as the Commanding Officer of the forces at the Alamo.

8/11. Seems to be an average of these test. Just means I learn something new.

You have one of the questions wrong. Col. William Travis lead the forces at the Alamo; not Davy Crockett

And now, George P. Bush is trying to make this sacred ground into an amusement park and even move the cenotaph. Nothing’s sacred any more.

Great quiz! Let’s remember how this hard fought battle that was a big part of Texas becoming independent and then part of the United States shouldn’t be diminished by allowing an invasion to occur over an unsecured border! 11/11 for me.

I’m related to Davey Crockett though my father and I believe colonel Travis was in command of the Alamo. Davey was just commanding the Tennessee unit of volunteers.

Davy Crockett did not lead “the Texas forces”. Colonel Travis did. Crockett was there with Tennessee fighters. He was a leader, but not the leader.

In the Alamo Quiz you show that Davy Crockett was the Texas commander. He was present at the battle, but the true commander was Wm. Travis.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who knew Davey Crockett didn’t command the Texan forces at the Alamo. I just guessed the only name I didn’t know…

Finally, a perfect score, even if it was only 11 questions. (With help from Walt Disney and John Wayne.) Having read the other responders, question, 10 reads “Who led………., not who commanded………… I think Jim Bowie was actually in command, but was sick or wounded prior to the siege, so command was transferred to Travis, but he was overshadowed by Crockett. But neither Bowie , nor Travis was offered as a choice, so the answer had to be Crockett Overall, I think there were like 135 brave heroes

Oh yes, and I believe Wm. Travis was only a Lt. during the battle, but may have been posthumously advanced, in recognition of his sacrifice. Or not.

Question 10 is wrong, Davy Crockett did not lead all the forces, Crockett only led the volunteers from Tennessee that came to help. The commander was James Neill, and he split, leaving Lt. Col. William Travis in charge.

William Barrett Travis and Jim Bowie were Co-Commanders of the Texian forces, David Crockett
was not in command.
