"The Man From The Alamo"
'The Man from the Alamo' is as much a detective story as it is an account of the lives of
Zephaniah Williams and John Rees, two of the main protagonists in the Chartist Uprising of
1839, an event that, in the eyes of the world, propelled Wales into the cockpit of working
class revolution. Twenty-two men died during the attack upon Newport's Westgate Hotel when
a detachment from the 45th Regiment of Foot, hidden behind the hotel's shuttered windows,
discharged their muskets into the crowd. For waging war against the monarch, thirteen of
the Chartist leaders were indicated for High Treason in the last great show-trial in
British legal history.
