Here is a post with pictures on Blue Moon's set of New Orleans Greys for the Texas War for Independence.

I wanted to include this in my post, but Wordpress wouldn't let me for some reason. Here is a roster of the New Orleans Greys that fell at the Alamo:

Blazeby's Company, New Orleans Greys 19 men
Andross, Miles Deforest
Blazeby, William, Captain
Clark, Charles Henry
Crossman, Robert
Dennison, Stephen
Dimpkins, James R., Sergeant
Garrand, James W.
Garrett, James Girard
Holloway, Samuel
Howell, William D.
Jones, John, Lieutenant
Linn, William
Marshall, William
McGee, James (wounded at Bexar, may have been in hospital)
Moore, Robert
Musselman, Robert, Sergeant
Nelson, George
Starr, Richard
Thomas, Henry

Baugh, John J. Captain, Garrison Adjutant

Nowlan, James, Cooke's Company, New Orleans Greys (severly wounded at Bexar, likely confined to hospital)

Parker, Christopher Adams (possible arrival with Dimmitt)*
Waters, Thomas (listed with Carey's Artillery Company)*
Wilson, David L (possible arrival with Dimmitt)*

*The last three men may have been left with the Alamo garrison to crew the 18lbr that Philip Dimmitt had hauled to Bexar from Dimmitt's landing. The gun was brought from New Orleans by the Greys.

Nicely done.

Looks great. The listing of the fallen at the Alamo itself is amazing. A veritable league of nations is represented. I was totally amazing to read how far many traveled in the name of freedom.

By the way, to those that speak of borders moving, there was an overrepresentation of Hispanics to fall there too on the Texian side.

At first I thought this was about Jazz loving space aliens…

Any chance these figures could be used as US Infantry from the Mexican-American War (1846-48)?

I think they would make good U.S. infantry. There is little difference in the actual uniform other than the color. The main glaring difference is that the officer and NCO lacks the sash worn as a badge of rank. If they are supposed to be volunteers they would work fine.

Looking to see if you are going to post more info on your Texian Iliad blog?
