Did You Know?


The Scouts spot a wagon bearing Susannah Dickinson and other Alamo survivors on a wagon, escorted by Mexican cavalry, under attack by Karankawa.

When General Santa Anna release the women and children of the Alamo, Sussanah Dickinson, her daughter, Bowie's slave-Joe, and a freed slave named Ben, whom was Colonel Almonte's cook, were the only members of this party. They rode horses out of San Antonio and encountered Texian scouts 20 miles outside of Gonzales that escorted them back to General Houston. They weren't escorted by Mexican soldiers, nor encountered Karankawa. See more »

Historically Inaccurate
1 June 2015 | by kristin-shirley61See all my reviews

Been watching "Texas Rising" and we are very disappointed in it. Why do they have to rewrite History? Only people from Texas and who know the landscape and the history will be the ones who know it but still it's ridiculous. First, the Texas soldiers are wearing union (Civil War 1861 - 1865) Uniforms. The Texas Army of 1836 had no uniforms. Except for Travis who wore a specially made uniform. Second, they showed the landscape 20 miles from Goliad as being a mountainous desert with canyons. Looks like they filmed it in the Davis Mountains, almost 500 miles away from Goliad. Third, they showed black slaves being executed at the Alamo. Bowie and Travis each had a slave. Joe and Sam. Neither were killed. There was no Jupitor. Fourth, The only Anglo Woman who survived the Alamo was Susanna Dickinson and her daughter. She was escorted to report the Alamo's defeat to Sam Houston by Joe and Sam. Fifth, Erastus "Deaf" Smith did not show up at the Alamo until all the fighting as over and the Mexicans were gone. This show on the History Channel is just another fictional story. Really nothing to do with History.
