  As far as books go, there are many. But if you wish to learn a lot in a very short time, I would recommend: A TIME TO STAND, by Walter Lord. It is a very old book, first published in 1961. Obviously, much new information has been learned about people and events in the past 50 years. But its a good primer.

  A excellent source for everything relating to the Alamo, the Texas Revolution, and Texas history in general is The Handbook of Texas Online:
