According to Kuykendall, Houston botched the order which dispatched the men to the Atascosito Crossing, sending them on foot because he thought they could find their way better in the dark and go more silently, but ordering them to send a messenger to him on their best horse if the Mexicans showed up. As regards the Bostick home, J. W. E. Wallace later stated that it was moved by the members of the army, namely Erasmo Seguin, Gaspar Flores, and others, for "the purpose of shelter during the difficulties of the time." Sion Bostick was the son of Martha Hill Bostick.
