Portrait of David Crockett
Former U.S. Congressman from Tennessee, David Crockett traveled to Texas in 1835 and jumped into the Texas Revolution with his participation at the battle of the Alamo. The question of how Crockett died at the Alamo is a controversial one. The long-held belief is that Crockett died in battle. However, some scholars now believe that Mexican soldiers captured Crockett and that Santa Anna ordered Crockett to be executed.
