March 4, 1836

Things looked scary for the Texans as I looked around!

I saw Mexicans positioned in Bexar, 400 yards away toward the west, and in La Villita, 300 yards to the south.

I saw soldiers shielded in the powder house 1000 yards toward the east.

Mexicans had secured the old mill which was 800 yards to the north.

What else might be an upcoming surprise for those in the fort?
