Remember the Alamo

“Remember the Alamo” echoes across history

The battle of the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar took place for 13 days, February 23 to March 6, 1836. The siege of the mission by Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna ended with the defenders being wiped out. The Alamo remains one of the most revered historic sites in Texas. We’ve visited a couple of times, and you can feel the history there.

  1. Oh! I didn’t mean anything derogatory in my last comment. It’s a good book! I lived in Texas for several years back in the ’80s – I lived near Brownsville – way down south.

  3. I loved the Riverwalk and the Alamo. The last time I was in San Antonio I stayed at the Menger. I didn’t see a ghost but my room had some strange things going on… the closet door would open on its own and the heat wouldn’t turn off – had to have the hotel staff take a look at it. They got it to stop until the next day. I chalked it up to being an old building (since I hadn’t known anything about it being haunted)…


  4. Nice clear picture. What joy you must be having, travelling around and seeing the sights!
    I didn’t read the book Becky talks of, but did read an article giving some non-romanticized facts about that situation. Reminds me of what a dear old friend once said to a disgruntled husband: “There’s your side; there’s her side — and then there’s the truth.”
