The fight for the Alamo remains one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

And Brian Kilmeade is one of cable news' biggest stars.

But there's a very good chance there's a lot you don't know about both the Alamo and Brian Kilmeade.

In Brian Kilmeade's new book Sam Houston and the Alamo Avengers: The Texas Victory That Changed American History, the "Fox & Friends" host breaks down what happened after the Alamo and shines a light on the lesser-known heroes that eventually brought Texas to victory.

Earlier this week, Kilmeade joined host Dave Anthony and the Rundown to discuss what his new book reveals about this turning point in America and how he managed to write yet another book despite his very busy television and radio schedule.

During the interview, Kilmeade showed how passionate he is about the subject and history, telling incredible stories, full of details and historical context to how General Sam Houston used the loss at the Alamo to rally the surviving Texans and eventually defeat the Mexican army.

Kilmeade also took some time to discuss his career and what it's like to work on "Fox & Friends", a morning show that has millions viewers and regularly grabs the attention of President Trump and NBC's Saturday Night Live

However, because the conversation was so long, not all of it could be used on Wednesday's Rundown.

On The Fox News Rundown Extra, Brian Kilmeade shares even more 'behind the scenes' stories about his time at Fox and what it's like to be watched (and sometimes criticized) by the President of the United States.
