History's Happenings for March 6

Remember the Alamo!
1836

The Alamo, San Antonio, TX

Prominent in the history of Texas independence, the legendary Alamo fell on the morning of March 6, 1836, after a two-week fight between the Texan defenders under Jim Bowie and William Travis, and several thousand Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna.

Tactically, it was no victory -- all 180 defenders were slain in battle or executed afterwards. But it delayed Santa Anna while Texas assembled its army, and drove that army, in her memory, to soundly defeat the Mexicans at San Jacinto in April. The latter victory freed the Republic of Texas from Mexican domination.
