    No one should ever, henceforth say "Remember the Alamo" with out mention of "the Texas Santa Fe Expedition" where Texas suffered it's most humiliating defeat.........!! It was quite understandable(considering feelings of "Manifest Destiny") that the Republic under Lamar, hatched an overextended plot to "capture" New Mexico..........a Republic having no taxing authority, bankrupt and without successful machinery for governance would then attempt such a task with volunteers who could not within 3 months find their way to Santa Fe with their $200,000.00 payload. It remained Armijo's goal to surrender to the United States, a government system complete with Federal authority to tax and raise armies so it is no wonder no one wanted to surrender to Lamar and that crippled bankrupt Texas condition he called a Republic. The Texas Santa Fe Expedition
