Re-Enacting the Battle of the Alamo: "HOW BIG is the Mexican Army?" by 


March 6 is celebrated in Texas as Alamo Day, commemorating the last day of the 13-day siege at Mission San Antonio de Valero (“the Alamo”) in 1836, where approximately 100 Texans gave their lives in the valiant defense against General Santa Anna’s Mexican Army of around 1500. This re-enactment took place in front of the historic shrine in downtown San Antonio, Texas. The Alamo Mission is in the National Register of Historic Places and is listed as a United States Historical Landmark.

    Love the look on this guys face…utter disbelief!!. If I remember my History. General Santa Anna had 10,000 soldiers under his command when he marched on the Alamo. Colonel Travis had 125 men under his command including Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, and the Indian scout Kit Carson. Carson left the defenders after 8 days of fighting to bring re-enforcements from General Houston, but arrived back at the Alamo only after the battle had ended. Santa Anna lost 2 thirds of his troops in the battle.before all within the Alamo were killed and their bodies burned by the Mexican army. No crosses mark graves within the Mission San Antonio de Valero only the memory and the tribute to those that fought and died to help win freedom for Texas from the Mexicans..

  • Thank you! Yes, you do remember the Alamo!
