The Alamo

by | Feb 11, 2016

We’ve heard the battle cry from movies, in books, even in the backyard with kids playing: “Remember the Alamo”. You can’t visit San Antonio without a walk through this iconic shrine. This mission came into existence in the early 1700’s by the Spanish. We know it best from the 1835 Texas Revolution with Mexico to establish Texas as a republic and the deaths of the entire garrison including notables such as Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and others.

Today, the entire site is a shrine in honor of those who lost their lives. A wealth of exhibits, video presentation, and excellent museum store are on the site for visitors. Joan and I spent several hours touring the Shrine, the long barracks which includes a wide array of historical items from the early days of the mission and the gardens.

The Museum gift shop has items from post cards to the elaborate to remember the visit and help support continued restoration of this treasure.

The Alamo is a must see when you visit San Antonio.
