AUSTIN -- When the brash, 26-year-old commander of the Alamo wrote his plea for help on Feb. 24, 1836, he was clear about his chances for surviving the siege by Mexican troops under Santa Anna. But Col. William Barret Travis knew the power of his words. He chose them carefully and crafted a message that transformed the Texas Revolution into an American fight against tyranny.

The “See the Letter” Facebook Photo Contest sponsored by the Texas General Land Office Save Texas History program invites participants to submit original photography that captures the essence of the Travis Letter by illustrating the meaning of courage, duty, loyalty, and valor. Photographs must be in digital format and include a caption.

To enter, visit The Travis Letter Facebook Page and complete an entry form. Entry deadline is Thursday, Feb. 21. The contest winner will win four round-trip tickets to San Antonio on Southwest Airlines and hotel accommodations for two nights at the Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio.

The Travis Letter will be the highlight of a comprehensive exhibit on Travis and the Texas Revolution from Saturday, Feb. 23, to Thursday, March 7, in the Alamo Shrine.
