Remember the Alamo! Texas was seeking its
independence from Mexico in March of 1836. Texas had to raise an
army quickly. One hundred and eighty-nine people fought in a
building known as the Alamo. Jim Bowie and Davie Crockett fought to
free Texas from Mexico.
The battle of the Alamo lasted 13 days. Over 3,000
Mexican soldiers came to fight at the Alamo. The Texans held out for
almost two weeks. In the end only 5 men were left. The Mexican
President ordered the five male prisoners to be killed. The Mexican
General asked to save the men because they had fought so bravely.
The Mexican President refused. The men were executed.
The battle of the Alamo and the killing of the 5 prisoners
made the Texans very angry. The Texans later surprised the Mexican
army and captured the Mexican President in April of 1836.
