“Messenger of the Alamo” historical home

This article about a new historical museum in Austin appeared in the newspaper this morning:

After years of renovation, Austin’s Dickinson Museum opens

Susanna Dickinson’s husband, Capt. Almeron Dickinson, was killed at the Alamo in 1836, before the final battle.  As the story goes, as Susanna and her infant daughter were leaving with the permission of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, William Travis gave her a ring from his family and asked her to carry the story of the Alamo to Sam Houston.  She moved to Austin more than 20 years later.  She and her house, which is now a museum, have a lot of history.  This story is well worth reading.
