Get Urrea!eBook - 2016
On March 27, 1836, General Jose Urrea ordered the cold-blooded killing of almost four hundred Texian prisoners of war. When news of the massacre reached General Samuel Houston, commander of the newly formed Army of the Republic of Texas, he was placed on the horns of a dilemma. For political reasons, he couldn't permit any official reprisals to be taken against Urrea, but he knew that something had to be done to stop the madman from striking again ... There was just one man who could help the General out of his predicament. To this man the General issued an unofficial order-an order which he knew would be practically impossible to carry out. That order was 'GET URREA!' The man in question was Captain Jackson Baines Hardin, and men said he was 'a lil ole devil in a fight.'. --Provided by publisher.
