Letter from William B. Travis Descendant about The Alamo Reimagine Plan
I am the great-great-great-nephew of Colonel William B. Travis. I have been following with great interest the Reimagine the Alamo campaign and am greatly disappointed. I URGE the planners to reconsider this campaign, the Fall of the Alamo is central to the Alamo. If there had not been a battle and great sacrifice there by our forefathers the Alamo would just be some other Spanish mission from a bygone era. The Alamo is sacred ground not only to Texas but to the U.S. and especially to those related to the Defenders that fell there. The Alamo is sacred ground. Would we consider reimagining the Battleship Arizona or Gettysburg? The answer should and must be no. Again, I urge the planners to put a stop to this and any efforts to move the Cenotaph.
