From the Paper:

"Davy Crockett, for example, was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1827. After some success in his political career, he was consecutively defeated in elections held during 1833 and 1834. Upon these defeats, Crockett made the decision to go to Texas. Crockett's exact fate during the Battle of Alamo is uncertain. There are many differing accounts, of which one is that he is among a group of Texans who surrendered and were subsequently executed. Others provided accounts in which Crockett died only after killing numerous of the Mexican army. Many believe that stories of his surrender were spread not so much to discredit Crockett as to do so with Santa Anna's reputation as villain."
