阿拉莫岗哨

[日期:2007-03-12]   [字体: ]

It wasn't until then that I noticed that he was soaked to the bone in dripping water and we had not a single drop of rain in a month or more. I just shook my head and closed the door behind him. I looked ahead for a spilt second to see if any other tourists were waiting to be picked up on the corner. I turned back and I discovered that Cloud was gone!! I looked behind the bus and saw no one, I was amazed at how fast he had went away. I just shrugged my shoulders and took off done for the day.

A few days later I was reading a book about the Battle of the Alamo when I discovered the most shocking thing I had ever discovered in my life. One of the pages of the book had a list of the names of the 183 defenders of the Alamo, and in the "C" section was the name, Daniel Cloud! When I read this my eyes went wide and I looked across the page and saw that he was only 19 years old when he was killed in the Alamo. He was the one who spotted the Mexicans before they took over the streets of San Antonio in February of 1836, and his post on top of the San Frenando Church where I had picked him up!

From then on I still look for Cloud when I'm passing by the San Frenando Church on my way back to the Alamo, and hopefully I'll pick him up again someday and take him to the Alamo.....

    我才发现他已经是浑身湿透了,可是,我们可能有一个多月没见过一滴雨了。我向他摇摇头表示不用谢,然后关了车门朝前面望了一眼,看看是不是还有人在拐角那等车准备回去。当我再回过头,却发现克劳德已经不见了。车上空无一人,我很纳闷他怎么走得这么快。我也只是耸耸肩,把最后一班车开回去了。

  几天以后我读到本介绍阿拉莫战役的书,发现一件有生以来最让我震惊的事情。书里有一页是守卫阿拉莫的183名士兵的名单,“C”字头的名录下有一个名字居然是丹尼尔克劳德!我简直不敢相信自己的眼睛,仔细地读了那一段以后,我这才知道他那年牺牲在阿拉莫的时候才19岁。他所在的部队1836年2月阻击了墨西哥人,那时墨西哥人还没有攻陷圣安东尼奥。他们当时的阵地是圣费尔南多大教堂,我就是从那里接他上的车。

  从那以后,每当我回阿拉莫经过圣费尔南多大教堂的时候都要找找克劳德是不是在那,我想有一天能再接他上车,带他去阿拉莫。
