But that's about the limit of our knowledge.
The Alamo is held in the highest regard by all Texans
(and, I'm assuming, most Americans).
I may have sneaked a photo (on museum setting) ...
Here's a potted history: the Alamo played a
critical role in the Texas Revolution in 1836.
The Mexican army had the Alamo under siege for 13 days
and their final assault ended with the massacre of almost 200 defenders,
including James Bowie (of the knife fame), Davy Crockett (he of the furry hat)
and William Travis (the Garrison commander and only 26 years old).
The Alamo is remembered as an heroic struggle against overwhelming 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.
So there you have it.
The Boy Child may have been persuaded
to channel his inner Davy Crockett.
