James E

James E. Crisps in his book Sleuthing The Alamo wrote about his thoughts on Sam Houston’s speech that he made to the soldiers at Refugio. The main reason for Crisps to investigate Sam Houston’s address was to understand why Houston’s actions were in contrary to what he said. In the book Sleuthing The Alamo, Crisps made people believe that Sam Houston’s speech was not correct by researching the statement in detail and disapproving the speech using the findings hence saving Houston’s reputation. Through the analysis that he did, he investigated the speech and interpreted it in four different versions; the actual meaning of the original statement, the interpretation of the speech as described in Ehrenberg German-language memoir, the translation of German language memoir by Bartholomae and Churchill’s version (Crisp, 101).
