Daniel Cloud is my husband's 4th great grand uncle. A friend of mine visited The Alamo over the weekend and was kind enough to bring back a pamphlet for me that has a quote of Daniel Cloud.
"If we succeed, the Country is ours. It is immense in extent, and fertile in its soil and will amply reward all our toil. If we fail, death in the cause of liberty and humanity is not cause for shuddering. Our rifles are by our side, and choice guns they are, we know what awaits us, and are prepared to meet it."
