March 5, 1836 - Evening

Being in the fort had given me the Texan insight. I spent most of the evening trying to get back across the field to Santa Anna's headquarters. I wanted to find out his plans for these besieged Texans!

When I got back and listened, I found out that the next day he vigorously planned a campaign with 4 columns hitting the Alamo at the same time from the northwest, northeast, east, and south. The north wall would receive the main blow of force.

The battle about to begin.
