Dear Miss Mills, My favorite book is called The Battle of the Alamo. It is about a time when Texas fought against Mexico for freedom. The Alamo was a fort that was actually made near the border to protect again attacks. The Mexicans tried to get in by using ladders to climb over the 12 foot tall walls. When the Mexicans got in, the Texans were attacked even sick in their beds. The Mexicans held no survivors and killed everybody except the women and children. The Mexicans won the war.
I thought this book was fascinating because they fought for days and days and days. So many men risked their lives to separate from Mexico. The Alamo was so big that I cannot believe that the Mexicans got in. I am relieved that they did not kill the woman and children. Texas later became a state of the United States of America. I was even born there!
