“Remember the Alamo!”

Most have heard this infamous battle cry, but many do not know how the saying came to be. Even fewer are aware of the unsung heroes involved in the horrific 1836 siege of this historic landmark.

María Andrea Castañon, later to be known as Señora Candelaria, is one such hero. Based on hours of research and the author’s personal conversations with Señora Candelaria’s relative still residing in San Antonio, Footfalls to the Alamo is a historical novel full of real-life characters and engaging storytelling.

Discover why Shawn has such a deep love for San Antonio history and what prompted her to write Footfalls to the Alamo.

Footfalls to the Alamo will entertain and educate while introducing you an amazing, overlooked woman in U.S history.
