    News of the Fall of the Alamo, Morning Courier and New-York Enquirer, Monday, April 10, 1836, New York, four pages, 23" x 27". Great and exciting content. The usual central folds and very light chipping at the bottom of the fold; else, near fine.

    The newspaper has 11 column inches of news announcing the fate of the Alamo defenders, "THE FALL OF BEXAR - THE ENTIRE OF THE TROOPS IN GARRISON PUT TO DEATH - COL'S CROCKETT AND BOWIE KILLED!" The story gives several accounts of the Alamo defenders' last days, their death, and the disposal of the bodies. It also states Texans' desire to avenge the deaths of their fallen heroes, "The general determination of the people of Texas seemed to be to abandon all the occupations and pursuits of peace, and to continue in arms until every Mexican east of the Rio del Norte should be exterminated."
