SAGA Magazine Travis Article June, 1961

Postby NefariousNed on Wed Jan 10, 2018 8:12 pm

Thanks to Ken "alamonorth" Mahoney for providing this rather fanciful article about Travis at the Alamo that appeared in the June, 1961 issue
of Saga Magazine.

The Saga Magazine cover from June, 1961 in color. Heavy Waynamo influence, don't you think?

Clearly. That's the Waynamo façade.

Thanks for the article! But every time he writes "Bill" Travis, I cringe.

Yep! Everyone here knows it should be "Buck".

It's curious how the article tries to make it look as though it was an original idea of Travis' to hold the Alamo when a month before Travis even
arrived in Bejar, Bowie had written Governor Smith how, "Colonel Neil and myself have come to the solemn resolution that we will rather die in
these ditches than give it up to the enemy." (Sort of like Paul McCartney trying to take credit for breaking up The Beatles when Lennon had
already quit the group the year before.) But then some people are glory hogs and Travis truly does seems to have been one.

And I STILL have seen absolutely no primary evidence that ANYBODY called him "Buck." Anybody know of any?
