I agree with Sam Houston.
We have to fight for our rights.
- I disagree.
You've overlooked one thing, Jim.
Although the Spanish gave us
we ceased to be a free state.
government. - General Houston!
Gentlemen, I'll get to the point.
I have to recruit an army to defend
Texas as an independent republic.
Many of you already know
And the others of you soon will.
If victory is to be ours,
we must have every able-bodied man
In the absence of any fighting, Sam,
people don't see any danger here.
Men are reluctant
That is why
I have just been told that Santa Anna
has occupied San Antonio.
Colonel Travis and less than 200 men
have retreated to the Alamo
to prepare for its defense.
At this moment, that is the only
military force between
And those men need help!
How do you feel, Jim? - I'd feel
better to be out there on that wall.
Never get any shootin' done in here.
- Oon't be too sure of that.
There's a lot of them left out there.
Some of them may even pay you a visit.
Just bring 'em in.
Me and Mr. Bowie are ready.
We won't have to bring them in, Sam.
Any word from Houston?
- Not yet.
- I hope so.
Sam's a good man,
he'll send some boys down to help us.
Oon't fret, Bill. You can always run
if things get too tough.
You aren't planning on leaving, Jim?
No, I guess not.
I don't run good either, Jim.
What did he say, Colonel?
- He said if we don't walk out now
with our hands in the air,
we won't walk out at all.
What are you gonna tell him, sir?
- Is this cannon loaded? - Yes, sir.
This is driving me crazy.
First they blow the place apart,
then you have to sit around for hours
and there ain't a sound.
- You think they're out of bullets?
Stick your head up and find out.
- I ain't that curious.
I ain't had no sleep in four days.
If you're tired of it,
open the gate and walk out.
Biggest mistake I made
was when I walked in.
You had all the way from Tennessee...
If I'd had 5 more miles,
I don't understand that. What are you
No war in Tennessee.
some help, so I came here to fight.
Still don't know what I'm fighting
for. What're you fighting for?
I got a ranch up at Oxbow,
with a wife and kids.
There's 4 or 5 more of us got a ranch
there, too. Right, Stroud? - Yeah.
Ooes that answer your question?
Got a family of my own in Tennessee.
- Yeah? Where's Oxbow?
Mexicans up that-a-way, is there?
None that I know of.
- So what you got to worry about?
Not the Mexicans.
Santa Anna's giving land to Texans
so they'll fight on his side.
You don't think
I know one already. Got a lot of
follower's, too. Name's Jess Wade.
Well, here we go again!
Hold it! It's one of our boys!
