The diary of William Barret Travis : August 30, 1833-June 26, 1834 by William Barret Travis( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE DIARY OF WILLIAM BARRET TRAVIS is an importrant contribution to Texas history. Ordinarily, honor and antiquity tend to cloak the heroes of any people in garments of immortality, shading out the human weakness of men exalted by history. Thus legend grows around only a kernel of truth. No legend is needed to place Travis among courageous men. History supports the thesis that Travis was a man of incisive intelligence and endaunted purpose. Thus the publication of the TRAVIS DIARY supports the theme of his letters from the Alamo. In the routine of daily Texas life fefore the war for independence, Travis would show the indomitable character seen in his defense of the Alamo. Noting in his diary on March 9,1834 that he started for Mill Creek, Travis continued " ... that waters all swimming & prarie so boggy--could not go--The first time I ever turned back in my life."

This is an image of the famous letter written by Colonel Travis on February 23, 1836, calling for aid at the Alamo from Texans and Americans. Today it is hailed as one of the great works of American patriotism and courage. The letter reads: "To the People of Texas and All Americans in the World: Fellow citizens and compatriots— I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna— I have sustained a continual Bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours and have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken— I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch—The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily and will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor and that of his country— Victory or Death. William Barret Travis Lt. Col. comdt P.S. The Lord is on our side— When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn— We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves. Travis" Colonel Travis wrote a series of letters throughout the siege. His last known letter was addressed to William Ayers and sent on March 3. It reads: “Take care of my little boy. If the country should be saved, I may make for him a splendid fortune; but if the country be lost and I should perish, he will have nothing but the proud recollection that he is the son of a man who died for his country.” Travis was killed three days later on the morning of the 6th while manning his post. He was 26 years old. Today, along with Crockett and Bowie, Travis is remembered as an American hero
