“You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.” – Davy Crockett

Now here is your little Texas history lesson:  

First came Texas Independence Day, which we celebrate on March 2. Just four days later, way back in 1836, the Mexican army attacked the Alamo. It was 189 men against 4,000 Mexican soldiers.

To this day, legends abound about the 13-day siege of the former mission. The men inside have grown larger than life. Consider Davy Crockett. Best known as the “King of the Wild Frontier” who sported a coonskin cap, Davy was a former U.S. Congressman voted out of office because he supported Indian rights. Davy was tired of the negative attitudes he faced back East and informed the voters, “You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.”

Today, political correctness and plain ol’ good manners demand that we refrain from repeating Davy’s sentiments. But whether you can come to Texas or not, you can always have the flavor of the Lone Star State close at hand. When you want to revere a hero, remember the Alamo. And when you want to send the perfect Texas-style gift, remember Texas Treats.
