The Alamo was built in 1718 as a part of the original Mission San Antonio de Valero.
The Battle of the Alamo
February 23 - March 6, 1836
The Alamo is where a small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against the army of General Antonio López de Santa Anna. Although the Alamo fell in the early morning hours of March 6, 1836, the death of the Alamo Defenders has come to symbolize courage and sacrifice for the cause of Liberty.
