The women didn't fight at the Alamo, but they are the true heroines of that battle. They had to survive without husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and lovers. What happened to them? How do women survive war?

"In this millenium, it's time for women to transform the Alamo into a monument to peace, a wailing wall, a place of truth-telling and reconciliation, if we are serious about ending war." -Barbara Renaud Gonzalez
