For thirteen days, two-hundred Texans fought to defend the Alamo from over a thousand Mexican troops. Though the battle was lost, it inspired the battle cry, “Remember the Alamo” which rallied the troops to victory in the war. Because of this battle, the Alamo has become a widely known San Antonio historical landmark that continues to be visited each year.
