The FAQ is an ongoing "work in progress" intended to best serve both new and long-time participants in the Alamo Studies Forum.
The FAQ is designed to provide a quick reference for the most frequently discussed topics about the Alamo and it's defenders. We don't want these threads to become discussion threads themselves, but rather references to such threads that are available elsewhere on the ASF.
For example, today I moved the discussion of Travis's line in the sand to the "Alamo History" section, where the discussion can continue. For the FAQ, however, I have replaced it with a generic summary of the issue, a couple of written sources on the subject, and links to several relevant threads. Anyone new to the forum, or who wants to refresh their memory on a subject, should find this a good starting point. As new threads emerge on these topics, we can add those to the FAQ.
Please feel free to suggest more topics for the FAQ. It is very helpful if, at the same time, you include references and links to appropriate information about the topic, including links to ASF threads.
PM me if you have questions or suggestions regarding the FAQ.
