The History of the Alamo

My interest, no my passion, for the Alamo began on the evening of February 23, 1955, when Walt Disney presented on his ABC television series Disneyland: Davy Crockett at the Alamo. From that point on I began seeking out any and all the information on the Alamo that I could get my hands on: books, magazines, or articles. 

Throughout the years I’ve collect quite a library on the subject. And over those years I found that what I thought was fact changed as newer information came to light. 

With the linked posts below I’ve tried to present different stories on the Alamo, from many different historical angles. 

I hope you enjoy my writings,

The series below is a narrative on the history of the Alamo compound, from its mission founding up till its current rediscovery. This series hasn’t been finished as yet, so please come back, and see what I’ve added.  Ron Current
