Yup, and 13 days was plenty of time for Fannin to arrive with the relief forces and supplies that Travis had sent. Unfortunately Fannin was a coward and totally incompetent. He should have been court martialed and relieved of command at that point. But because he came from a wealthy and powerful family, he wasn't. Of course, a few weeks later he got his troops massacred at Goliad after he surrendered to an inferior force. After the war, his family did a bunch of PR to try to make him look like a hero, and as a result, some early history books contain misinformation about Fannin's involvement with the Alamo and Goliad massacres. To this day, most Texas cities and towns still have streets named in honor of him.
AND NOW YOU KNOW ...
THE REST OF THE STORY.
