Texas History: Remember the Alamo

“Remember the Alamo”

March 6, 2024 - The Texas State Historical Association offers ‘Texas Day by Day’ history summary with today, March 6th, highlighting the fall of the Alamo to the Mexican Army.

“On this day in 1836, the fortified compound of San Antonio de Valero Mission, under siege for thirteen days by the Mexican army under General Antonio Lòpez de Santa Anna, was subjected to an early morning assault. After a fierce battle, lasting for perhaps some 90 minutes, the defenses of the Alamo were overrun and all the defenders were killed. The chapel fell last. The slogan "Remember the Alamo!" subsequently became a rallying cry for the Texas Revolution, and the Alamo became a shrine to fallen Texas heroes.” https://www.tshaonline.org/texas-day-by-day/entry/327
