FORGET THE ALAMO: The Rise and Fall of an American Myth
Provocatively explains the true story of the battle against the backdrop of Texas's struggle for independence, then shows how the sausage of myth got made in the Jim Crow South of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As uncomfortable as it may be for some to hear, celebrating the Alamo has long had an echo of celebrating whiteness. 16 pages of photos.
