Larry carried the Illinois State flag during the March 6, 1986 ceremonies on Alamo Plaza.


Nice pic and flag! Does the Illinois State flag relate to the Alamo, or was it because Larry lived in Illinois at the time, just like Kaj Andersen brought along the Danish flag?

Jack Edmonson as Travis draws his line in the Campo Santo.


That´s a great pic of Jack Edmondson as Travis. How young we all were back then.

For those of you who have been inside the Alamo you'll see a number of flags from different states and countries. These flags represent
where the defenders were from. I don't know if the Daughters still do it but there was a ceremony on March 6, 1986 that consisted of
some one calling out the defenders names by state. As the names were read people representing the defenders would walk across the
plaza with one of them holding the flag from the state/country being honored. When it came time to read off the defenders from Illinois
there was only one, Johnathon L. Lindley. So being from Illionis I had the honor of carrying the flag.

I see! That´s cool, Larry! I guess Kaj Andersen stepped forward with the Danish flag then, when Charles Zanco´s name was called. I wonder if the DRT still holds that ceremony?

I don't know if this ceremony is still held. Perhaps someone else can answer the question. I would also like to know.

I believe the DRT holds this flag ceremony inside the chapel now.

Some sort of honour guard. There's Jack Edmondson, background, centre---and even ME by the corner of the Alamo facade.

Oh dear, Jack is about to give his three hour speech. While Mike Waters gets to lay this one out, Jeff Bearden, Dennis McCamley (in
feather topper) and his friend Clive gotta stand for the duration. :( (That's little Daniel Morfin in red bandanna and sash.) And
isn't that Jerry Laing's hat directly beneath the New Orleans Greys flag on the left there? And come to think of it, that's Doug Cohen
standing next to Jeff Bearden.

That´s great! I think that´s a nice tradition.

Lots of nice pics from the 150th anniversary!

Cool Sesquicentennial jug!


Indeed! It should be filled with 150 year old whiskey from Texas anno 1836. :D
