Story


Where myth meets history... where legend meets reality... the roads cross at San Antonio de Bexar and the small, ruined mission there: The Alamo. In the spring of 1836, nearly 200 Texans - men of all races who believed in the future of Texas - held the fort for 13 days under siege by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, ruler of Mexico and commander of its forces. Led by three men - the young, brash Col. William Travis; the violent, passionate James Bowie; and the larger-than-life living legend David Crockett - the Texans and their deeds at the Alamo would pass into history as General Sam Houstonís rallying cry for Texas independence and into legend for their symbolic significance.
