Our generation grew up with Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and Jim Travis. These men were our heroes along with baseball players. We were excited to see The Alamo! We felt the moral lessons and action packed episodes from those television shows coming back to us as we arrived. Instead, as adults, the sacrifice and bravery of the men who fought at the Alamo made us reverent and reflective.
Did you know the Alamo is one of the five 18th-century Spanish colonial missions-Concepcion, San Jose, San Juan, Espada and the San Antonio De Valero (the Alamo)-that comprise the only World Heritage Site in Texas?
