Join the defenders of the Alamo and relive a heroic struggle against overwhelming odds. The defense of the Alamo has become an American legend, and the building is a shrine to Texas liberty. These 30 carefully researched drawings chronicle events leading up to the fall of the 18th-century mission and the last stand of Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and many others who fought bravely for independence. Captioned scenes include the Mexican advance halted by rebels firing from behind earthworks; Texans of Mexican descent in revolt against the dictator Santa Anna; raising the flag of the Texas rebels; the arrival of Davey Crockett at the Alamo; a meeting under a flag of truce; and much more.
