With Santa Anna in Texas: A Personal Narrative of the Revolution

The discovery of an additional week’s worth of entries in the diary of José Enrique de la Peña has opened another chapter in the longstanding controversy over the authenticity of the Mexican officer’s account of the Battle of the Alamo.

In this expanded edition of With Santa Anna in Texas, Texas Revolution scholar James E. Crisp, who discovered the new diary entries in an untranslated manuscript version of the journal, discusses the history of the de la Peña diary controversy and presents new evidence in the matter. With the “missing week” and the perspective Crisp provides, the diary should prompt a new round of debate over what really happened at the Alamo.

When it was first translated and published in English in 1975 by Carmen Perry, With Santa Anna in Texas unleashed a fury of emotion and an enduring chasm between some scholars and Texans. The journal of de la Peña, an officer on Santa Anna’s staff, reported the capture and execution of Davy Crockett and several others and also stated the reason behind Santa Anna’s order to make the final assault on Travis and his men. Whether or not scholars agree with de la Peña’s assertions, his journal remains one of the most revealing accounts of the Texas Revolution ever to come to light.

Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS 2-Line Scientific Calculator, Black w/Blue Accents

The Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS 2-Line Scientific Calculator features two-line display and other advanced features users get with the TI-30X IIS. The display shows the equation you are creating on the top line, and the numbers or symbols you are currently entering on the second line. Once the equation is solved, the results are displayed on the second line, and you can use the four arrow keys on the front of the calculator to edit the original equation in any way you like for a recalculation. Better still, pressing the up arrow repeatedly lets you browse through a cache of dozens of previous calculations, meaning you can look back to see the answer to a problem. The device uses solar power when possible but can fall back on the internal batteries (which are included) if there isn’t enough light. There are three angle modes (degrees, radians, and grads), scientific and engineering notation modes, and even one- or two-variable statistical modes. Five variables can also be assigned to their own memory slots. The calculator comes with a Snap-On cover that fits on the back of the device.

Key Features:

  • Two-line display
  • Fraction features
  • Conversions
  • Basic scientific and trigonometric functions

    If the Gods Had Meant Us to Vote, They’d Have Given Us Candidates

    Jim Hightower, America’s favorite subversive, is still mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. But he will give you a sizeable piece of his mind on Election 2000. This plain-talking, name-naming, podium-pounding populist zeros in on everything that ails us, from the global economy and media to big business and election winners everywhere. In his hard hitting commentary and hilarious anecdotes, Hightower spares no one, including the scared cows — and especially the politicians — who helped steer us into this mess in the first place. An equal opportunity muckrucker and a conscientious agitator for “We the People”, Hightower inspires us to take charge again, build a new politics for a better tommorow — and have a lot of laughs along the way

    Liberal populist Jim Hightower has a knack for naming books; before If the Gods Had Meant Us to Vote… came There’s Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos. Even the chapter titles of the current volume reveal Hightower’s way with words as well as they underscore his themes: “Some Say We Need a Third Party, I Wish We Had a Second One” and “Plutocracy Is Not Government by a Far-Off Planet.” Hightower speaks for angry, disaffected Americans who view both Democrats and Republicans as sleazy money-grubbers who do the bidding of wealthy multinational corporations. He is one of the sharpest voices on the Left, and also a very funny one. Even right-wingers will find themselves laughing at some of his jokes, and the Pat Buchanan set may see a few points of agreement. Ultimately, though, If the Gods Had Meant Us to Vote… isn’t a book for conservatives, but for liberals who feel that not even the Democratic Party can represent them in the era of Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Hightower’s enthusiasm is contagious: “Hey, let’s gut it up, decamp from Washington, put our resources in the countryside, slug the corporate bastards right in the snout, and get it on with a grassroots politics that gives regular folks a reason to be excited and get involved.” Readers already inclined toward these views will be eager to join Hightower’s crusade by the time they finish his energetic book. –John J. Miller

    Guadalupe Mountains National Park: Geologic Resource Evaluation Report

    The geology of the Guadalupe Mountains is exceptional, so exceptional that the International Commission on Stratigraphy selected this section of rocks to serve as the standard against which all other rocks of Middle Permian age (270–260 million years ago) are compared. This distinction is a benefit to the National Park Service, supporting its mission, as well as a benefit to the international scientific community. It is also a bonus for backcountry visitors, providing an interesting hiking destination recognized for its geologic uniqueness.
