On February 24, 1836, Lt. Col. William B. Travis, the commander of the besieged garrison in the Alamo, dispatched a messenger to Gonzales with the following urgent appeal:
"To the people of Texas and all Americans in the world - fellow citizens and compatriots. I am besieged... 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. I have answered the demand with cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call upon 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 his own honor and that of his country. Victory or Death."
