Summary
"Hastily cramming the handwritten constitution (adopted near midnight on March 16, 1836) into their saddlebags, the ad interim president and cabinet of the Republic of Texas began their hazardous flight from Washington-on-the-Brazos just ahead of Santa Anna's advancing Mexican troops. The Alamo had fallen; Houston and what was left of a demoralized Texas army were in panic. A gripping scenario for an epic film, sketched swiftly in this day-by-day account of Texas government during the five decisive weeks prior to victory at San Jacinto"--Jkt. flap
