Why was it worthwhile to the Texans to risk their lives defending the Alamo?
The Alamo was not an stragetic point. James Bowie had orders to destroy the Alamo and instead he became the garrison co-commander. Only two of the fighters survived in the three day combat. Arround 200 Texians died and around 600 Mexicans died. Military strategists agree that the Alamo was not worth defending.
