He escaped from the Alamo. C. He was rescued by Sam Houston. D. He surrendered & was executed The Death of Davy Crockett Some seven men survived the general carnage and, under the protection of General Castrillón, they were brought before General Santa Anna. Among them was one of great stature, well proportioned, with regular features, in whose face there was the imprint of adversity, but in whom one also noticed a degree of resignation and nobility that did him honor. He was the naturalist David Crockett, well known in North America for his unusual adventures, who had undertaken to explore the country and who, finding himself in Béjar at the very moment of surprise, had taken refuge in the Alamo, fearing that his status as a foreigner might not be respected. Santa Anna answered Castrillóns intervention on Crocketts behalf with a gesture of indignation and, addressing himself to the sappers, the troops closest to him, ordered his execution…. Though tortured before they were killed, these unfortunates died without complaining and without humiliating themselves before their torturers.
