Fall of the Alamo

The Alamo is the site of the most famous battle of the Texas Revolution. Forces fighting for Texas' independence from Mexico took up positions inside of the Alamo, and were attacked by Mexican forces led by General Santa Anna. The Texans fought bravely, but were eventually overwhelmed and killed. While the Texan's lost this battle, "Remember the Alamo!" became a rallying cry in future battles, which eventually led to victory and the birth of the Teaxs Republic. The Alamo still stands today, as a museum, in San Antonio, Texas. The building was originally a Roman Catholic mission, located in San Antonio, Texas.
