Dedicated to those in the world who continue to struggle for freedom.

An arched garden wall at the Alamo, San Antonio Texas USA

On February 23, 1836, the arrival of General Antonio López de Santa Anna’s army outside San Antonio nearly caught them by surprise. Undaunted, the Texians and Tejanos prepared to defend the Alamo together. The defenders held out for 13 days against Santa Anna’s army.

Among the Alamo’s garrison were William B. Travis, the commander of the Alamo, Jim Bowie, renowned knife fighter, and David Crockett, famed frontiersman and former congressman from Tennessee.

While the facts surrounding the siege of the Alamo continue to be debated, there is no doubt about what the battle has come to symbolize. People worldwide continue to remember the Alamo as a heroic struggle against impossible odds — a place where men made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. For this reason, the Alamo remains hallowed ground and the Shrine of Texas Liberty.

The Alamo together with the other San Antonio Missions was nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Listing in 2008.
