Don't get my uncle started on the peculiar spelling on signs in Brackettville!

Farkis got the brunt of THAT series of gripes. :P

Nothing a hacksaw and some Gorilla Glue... I mean Curilla Glue.. wouldn't fix.

Hahaha! What about "Del A Rosa" street instead of "De la Rosa?" I mean I knew the correct version of that in high school . . . in Pennsylvania! :roll:

Great job, Ned. Thanks for posting all the pictures. Some of the photos in the slide show I have never seen before. Wish I could have been there.

Ned, Thanks for doing another great job and doing a public service for all of us Alamo fans. It really made my day to see all your posts and pictures covering John's presentation. :D
I can't thank you enough.

John, Thank you for all the research and hard work that you've done so that John Wayne's "The Alamo" will always be preserved in our memories. Your book is one that I truly cherish. You've got good taste in shirts, too. ;)

Entire Alamo Collection For Sale

Postby MUSTANG on Sun Dec 11, 2016 4:23 pm

To everyone, the following is a message I posted on Facebook last night.

"Here's a wonderful opportunity for those interested in all things Alamo. For reasons I won't explain, I'm in the process of liquidating my entire Alamo collection. Everything must go including all my collectibles. This would include three replica Bowie knives, three whiskey jugs, a leather water bag, an Alamo mug given by John wayne to a crew member, a gold alamo premiere ticket for the Woodlawn showing, a styrofoam adobe block, a large collection of Kings X Alamo figurines, a shako for a band member, a black metal dragoon helmet, a sliver metal dragoon helmet, a molded fibergas silver dragoon helmet, a leather buckskin shirt worn by an alamo extra, two replica crockett rifles, a modifed trapdoor Springfiled rifle with faux brass hammer and frizzen, a percussion rifle used by a extra, a wooden three-pane window frame from Bowie's headquarters, a replica Skunk cap, and two coonskin caps. In addition, I have numerous record albums, 45 singles, laser disc, posters, advertising, magazines, comic books, hardcover and softcover books, etc. all John Wayne Alamo related. I should say that the collectibles are a bit pricey but they're also very rare. if you're interested in anything, please message me and I'll get back with the particulars."

I'm in the process of pulling together a complete list at the moment but the response has been overwhelming so far. One buyer even said they want to purchase EVERYTHING!!!

As many of you know, I also have a huge collection of Alamo photos. No one is going to buy 7 or 8,000 photos all at once so I'll probably sell a grab-bag collection of 8 each for $100 or something like that. Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know. If you're interested in anything, just let me know. I already have 10 parties interested in the mug. LOL!

Mustang,

I know you will know this answer. I cannot freeze frame my video at just the right moment to read it. When the Mexican Army flags are shown as the regimental band plays Deguello and accompanies General Santa Anna up the ridge on the day of the final assault, one flag carries Tres Villas while another carries The President of Mexico but what has been sewn under the Mexican eagle for the third flag.

By the way I finished your wonderful book, added a reply earlier to you on it and I think this book will be an integral source for future Alamo historians!

Sorry for the late reply, Jim. I've gone through all my photos and have sent a few to Mo to post to the forum. Perhaps someone can check these out and try and determine the answer. And, thanks so much for your kind words. I read the PM message and really appreciate what you've said.

Old Farkis told Mo, Mo told Gill, Gill told me and now I'm telling you! Here's the photos in question.
