I love history. We’ve traveled all over the U.S. and we’ve found many favorites in each state.
San Antonio The Alamo in San Antonio
Misión San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo. We’ve all heard of the Alamo for as long as we can remember. The words “Remember the Alamo” resonated in ours heads. When I was younger, I had no idea what it meant. Now, as an adult, I understand that it’s hallowed ground, a tribute to those who lost their lives, making the ultimate sacrifice for something they passionately believed in−freedom.
It was originally a mission. Depending on your history teacher, you learned it was a vicious battle over the control of San Antonio in the Texas Revolution with no survivors—at least that’s how I remember it. Sometimes, unless you personally dig deeper, you have to depend on that vague memory, whether it be correct or not. The Alamo was one of those places, where my husband and I remembered the history vaguely yet, not quite correctly.
The Alamo’s located in downtown San Antonio and not difficult to find. There were signs everywhere. Admission is free. Of course, they accept donations. I was even lucky enough to get a picture taken with a real Texas Ranger. (Sorry, didn’t get his permission to use it for the journal.)
As we toured the Alamo, we didn’t see any bullet holes or cannon holes in the remaining original structure. This doesn’t mean there weren’t any, we just didn’t see any. However, inside the original walls, we did see some marks from obvious bullet/ball holes.
There is a copy of the famous letter written by the Commander of the Texan rebels asking for help to defend the “People of Texas and All Americans” and signed “Victory or Death”.
