I've gained interest in the Alamo since I found out I had an ancestor there during 1836. I traced the Dimmett/Dimmitt branch of our family tree and came across Phillip Dimmitt as a 2nd cousin. From what I've read he was sent out from the Alamo to get reinforcements when the Mexicans launched their final assault. I plan on visiting the Alamo hopefully in the next year or two. What are some good books in reading up on the Alamo and the Texas Independence movement?
