Cover: “Texas: Church of Alamo, San Antonio de Bexar.” From the Illustrated London News, 1844. Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, D.C. This issue of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly arrives at the time of year when residents of the Lone Star State mark several significant anniversaries related to the Texas Revolution, such as the Battle of the Alamo. Appropriately, one of the articles we are publishing this month focuses on the Revolution: “‘This Is A Cruel Truth, But I Cannot Omit It’: The Origin and Effect of Mexico’s No Quarter Policy in the Texas Revolution” by Richard Bruce Winders.
