Visiting the Alamo

The Alamo was a place occupied by Spanish settlers, and an important part of the early stages of Texas’s war for independence from Mexico. The Spanish settlers established a military and prepared for a fight. During the early stages of the war, a group of Texan soldiers ambushed and took over the Alamo from the Mexican military and gained control of San Antonio. Shortly after, the Mexican military gained control once again. The Battle of The Alamo went on for years and eventually ended with the Texans winning.
