Narrator:
On the first day of December, in 1832, a man rode up to a muddy stream called the Red River. When he crossed this river, he was in Texas. He was a man in search of a new life, because his previous one had left him desolated and sick at heart. He was a man of size and strength and he had history in his hands. His name was Sam Houston.

President Andrew Jackson:
Sam, some people have destiny sitting right on their backs of their necks. You're one of 'em. You're a born leader. When you talk, people listen because you love 'em. You'll fight for 'em and you'll die for 'em if you have to... and they know it.

Sam Houston:
You may have wondered why I delayed this attack for so long. I wanted Santa Ana to be positive we were running for the United States and then I wanted the Mexican army in a position from which it could not retreat. That's where it is right now. The Bay of San Jacinto is at their backs. All right are there any questions, gentlemen? Good luck - and remember the Alamo!
