Excerpt from Sketches of America and Americans

Then came Santa Anna; a crescent of ?ame! Then the red escalade; then the fight hand to hand; Such an unequal fight as never had name Since the Persian hordes butchered that doomed Spar tan band.

All dam - all day and all night; and the morning? So slow, Through the battle smoke mantling the Alamo.

Now silence! Such silence! Two thousand lay dead In a crescent outside! And within? Not a breath Save the gasp of a woman, with gory gashed head, All alone, all alone there, waiting for death; And she but a nurse. Yet when shall we know Another like this of the Alamo? - Joaquin Miller.
