The texans with so many weapons, were able to hold off the Mexicans for so long. The Mexican army were prepared for a face to facae battle with a bayonet attached to their guns; but, the Texans cannons defended them off till ammo ran out. With lack of time and resources I can't see Travis actually having a uniform unless it was made from his own hands. These men battled to their death and never thought of surrender.
The Texans' guns weren't quality machines and were able to use anything as ammo. So when the rumor of Travis stabbing himself before capture was said, I immediately didn't believe it. I think David Crockett died fighting, being the noble person that he was wouldn't live without being free.
These men could of ran out of town before the army arrived but they stayed and fought side by side with fellow followers.
None of them wanted to die but they knew their cause of death would help show the fight for freedom is worth self-sacrifice.
