About this Event

Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade’s forthcoming Historical Thriller SAM HOUSTON AND THE ALAMO AVENGERS: The Texas Victory That Changed American History explores the story of the Alamo and will allow a new generation of readers to learn about one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

Another history page-turner from the New York Times bestselling author of GEORGE WASHINGTON'S SECRET SIX, THOMAS JEFFERSON AND THE TRIPOLI PIRATES, and ANDREW JACKSON AND THE MIRACLE OF NEW ORLEANS: In March 1836, the Mexican army led by General Santa Anna massacred about 200-250 Texans who had been trapped in a tiny adobe church in San Antonio for thirteen days. American legends Jim Bowie and Davey Crockett died there, along with other Americans who had moved to Texas looking for a fresh start. The devastating loss galvanized the surviving Texans. Under General Sam Houston, a maverick with a rocky past, the tiny army of settlers rallied. Just one month after the massacre, the underdog Texans soundly defeated the "Napoleon of the West" (as Santa Anna styled himself) at the Battle of San Jacinto. They secured the independence of the land their friends had died for. In his now trademark fashion, Brian Kilmeade explores hidden aspects of Sam Houston, the first president of Texas, and brings the reader to the scenes of one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

SAM HOUSTON AND THE ALAMO AVENGERS: The Texas Victory That Changed American History is available Tuesday, November 5, 2019 (Sentinel/Penguin Random House; November 5, 2019)
