Remember the Alamo

The Battle of the Alamo took place at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas in February and March 1836. The 13-day battle started Tuesday, February 23, 1836, and ended Sunday, March 6, 1836, with the capture of the mission and the death of nearly all the defenders. As a result of this battle, the the Mexican Army was stalled allowing Sam Houston to gather troops and supplies for his later success at the Battle of San Jacinto.

I visited San Antonio about a year ago and just had to visit the Alamo. For more info about the battle visit the Official Alamo Website
