The Alamo

The story of the historic 1836 battle in the Texan War of Independence. Facing nearly 2,000 Mexican troops, 186 Texan soldiers and volunteers - including William Travis, Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie - retreat within the walls of the Alamo, a Franciscan mission that was converted into a military fort. Once inside, the men prepare themselves for what will be a bloody battle to the death.
