Long Description:
Gonzales Inquirer

"An artist's interpretation of a larger-than-life Susanna Dickinson and her baby girl Angelina Elizabeth, "The Babe of The Alamo", as they fled the destruction of The Alamo to make an arduous journey back to Gonzales with dreadful news.

After the fall of the Alamo and the deaths of many men, including Dickinson's husband Almaron Dickinson, it was recorded that she and her baby Angelina "The Babe of the Alamo" returned to Gonzales carrying a letter of warning, which sparked the counter attack that eventually won Texas independence."
