A place in Texas where a battle took place. Many people of the united states tend to think this battle showed how great americans are, because there were so few of them and they held off the swarthy mexican horde for so long so that they could keep their freedom. What many don't realize is that this battle was fought because the Texan whites wanted to secede from Mexico so that they could keep their slaves. Mexico had just outlawed slavery but the uppity whites of Texas would have nothing of it. Somehow this is hailed as a glorious part of american history when in reality it should serve as a shameful reminder of our racist and supremacist past and present.
