Beyond the Alamo

This chapter focuses on the early fall of 1835, when the citizens and government officials of Bexar gathered to prepare for the upcoming Independence Day celebration. For almost a decade after independence, Mexicans marked the origins of the independence movement beginning on the evening of September 15 and continuing through the next day. The decisions to commemorate the events of 1810 rather than 1821 signaled the popular disenchantment with the memory of Agustin Iturbide's government. A month before the celebration, fifty Bexarenos gathered in the political chief's council hall to elect the junta patriotica, or patriotic commission, in charge of organizing the event. Ramon Musquiz emerged from the meeting as the president of the junta, elected by a margin of thirty-three votes to sixteen over Colonel Nicolas Condelle.
