Storyboard Text

  • We in San Antonio have low morale and little supplies. We will surely loose easily
  • We will not attack
  • What, we aren't going to attack! This is ridiculous! I want to fight. Who is with me?
  • Me, me too, me three ... me three hundred
  • Benjamin
  • BOOM!!!
  • In December the Mexican Army was in bad condition.
  • Francis
  • Benjamin Milam thought that a major victory would boost the Texians enthusiasm about independence. He got about 300 volunteers to join him.
  • Move along!
  • December 5: The Texians split up into 2 teams. One led by Benjamin and the other led by Francis W. Johnson, surprise attacked the Mexicans. They captured many houses but the Mexicans responded with cannon and musket fire which halted the Texians advance.
  • The battle lasted for 4 days with the Texians having the advantage because the Mexican army was trained to fight in an open field, not in a town. On the third day Benjamin died and Francis took charge.
  • On the fourth day the Texians reported 21 injured men and 2 dead. The Mexicans had about 150 men either captured, wounded, or killed.
  • The Texians were victorious and captured the Mexican General, Martin Perfecto de Cós, and made him sign an agreement that told them they had to move south of the Rio Grande. General Cós promised to never fight the colonists again.
