The Alamo, {CATEGORY}

Originally the Mission San Antonio del Valero, the Alamo is by far the most famous historical site in Texas, playing a significant role in Texas' quest for independence from Mexico. Under the command of Col. William Travis, 189 Texan soldiers bravely defended this fort for 13 days before finally succumbing to Santa Anna's massive Mexican army in early 1836. The chapel and the Long Barrack are all that remain of the fort. Saved from civilian apathy by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, the mission is now a museum containing relics from the era. Texans take the Alamo very seriously. Narrated tours are available.

The Alamo, {CATEGORY}

When most visitors see the Alamo for the first time, their common reaction is "Hmmm, I thought it would be bigger". Though the shape of the facade of the Alamo is widely recognized by most Americans, most think of it as a large fortress. This only underscores how heroic and desperate were the actions of the Alamo's defenders, who in 1836 held off a siege by a large Mexican army for 13 days. The Alamo today is more a shrine than a museum. It's main purpose is to honor the fallen. The siege played an important role in Texas independence, both strategic and iconic. And the actions of its defenders, whether real or imagined, went a long way toward creating the larger-than-life mystique that Texas was eventually to acquire. Among the defenders were famous men of their day, such as Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, and the idea of their sacrifice for Texas independence gave added meaning to the struggle almost immediately. "Remember the Alamo!" became the battle cry at San Jacinto, when the Texans finally defeated the Mexican army and captured its general, López de Santa Anna. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas, who saved the crumbling mission from being turned into a hotel by a New York syndicate in 1905, have long been the Alamo's stewards. They have installed exhibits to display the various roles the mission played, including serving as a Native American burial ground. The Alamo's original name was Mission San Antonio de Valero, and many converted Indians from a variety of tribes lived and died here. The complex was secularized by the end of the 18th century and leased out to a Spanish cavalry unit, however, by the time the famous battle took place, it had been abandoned. A Wall of History, erected in the late 1990s, provides a chronology of these events. The outlying buildings of the original mission are gone. Only the Long Barrack (formerly the convento, or living quarters for the missionaries) and the much-photographed mission church are still here. The former houses a museum detailing the history of Texas in general and the battle in particular, and the latter includes artifacts of the Alamo fighters, along with an information desk and a small gift shop. The exhibit doesn't do the best job of explaining how the battle developed. If you want to understand more, see the IMAX show in the nearby Rivercenter Mall. A larger museum and gift shop are at the back of the complex. A peaceful garden and an excellent research library (closed Sun) are also on the grounds. All in all, though, the complex is fairly small. You won't need to spend more than an hour here. Interesting historical presentations are given every half-hour by Alamo staffers, for private, after-hour tours, phone tel. 210/225-1391, ext. 34.
