    The AlamoThe Alamo San Antonio, Texas
    One of the most famous destinations in the state of Texas should be the Alamo, that bastion of heroism that was atypical of the great American pioneering spirit that would build a nation out of separate colonies, all content to mind their own business and do whatever was necessary to take care of their families. The Battle of the Alamo would take place from February 23 until February 6, 1836 and would become the pivotal event that describes the Texas Revolution. After a 13 day siege, the Mexican army, led by President General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna would begin a massive assault against the survivors of the Alamo mission by San Antonio de Bexar; where all but two of the heroes would die, killed and murdered without mercy. His cruelty would be perceived by the Texians as a very cruel act that would inspire many Texians, both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States, to join the Texian army. Armed with this idea or perception still pulsing inside their heads, the Texians would beat the Mexican army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836 and end the revolution. Some months before, the Texians had driven every Mexican soldier out of Mexican Texas, with about 100 men garrisoning the Alamo. As reinforcements arrived by eventual co-commanders, James Bowie and William B. Travis, the force would grow a bit, but on February 23, when 1500 Mexican troops Februaryed into San Antonio de Bexar, the Texians knew they were in for a battle, as the Mexicans begin their first step to retake the territory.
