Isnt Phil Collins a big time Alamo history buff?

Yes he held one of the largest private collection of Alamo memorabilia in the world at one time. He has since donated a large portion of it back to Texas along with the funds to house and display it.

Everyone knows that Davy Crockett died after being bayoneted and throwing a torch into the powder magazine to destroy it and thus prevent it from falling into enemy hands.

 

Yep.

 

I seen it on the screen with my own eyes. :huh:

Bayonetted would be more like being a pin cushion.

 

Lanced would appear to be more like being 'skewered'..... ^_^

 

This of course, is just my opinion.
