The Alamo Mission (San Antonio, TX)


The battle that turned into a rallying cry - "Remember the Alamo!" - happened in San Antonio, at a small religious compound. Mexican forces, led by General Santa Anna, laid siege to the Alamo, which was defended by a small group of American forces under the command of Colonel James Bowie. While Bowie and his men lost the battle, their bravery under fire inspired their compatriots in subsequent engagements.
