New Evidence and New Conclusions concerning the Alamo,
This review is from: Alamo Traces: New Evidence and New Conclusions (Paperback)
Mr. Lindley has obviously spent years at the State Archives
researching this book. The book contains 676 references, many
dating back to the 1830's. The list of references alone is well
worth the price of the text.
Without a doubt, some scholars are going to feel very uncomfortable since some of Mr. Lindley's conclusions do not agree with the accepted version we were taught in school. Especially since the author backs up his assertions with
documentation that dates back 160 years in some cases.
This book is a must for anyone with even a casual interest in
Texas history. We will certainly be hearing more about Mr. Lindley and his book Alamo Traces: New Evidence and New Conclusions.
