During the Texas Revolution, the Mexican Army clashed with Texan forces on several battlefields, the most famous of which was the Alamo. During this 13-day siege, a small group of defenders held out against overwhelming odds only to die in the final Mexican assault on the Alamo mission. Although it was clearly a tactical defeat for the Texans, this legendary “last stand” was a sentinel event during the Texas Revolution. The battle, more than any other event, galvanized Texans’ popular support against Gen. Santa Anna, President of Mexico. Not only did the brave defenders buy time for Sam Houston to build his Texan army, but they also created the symbol that would rally the support and manpower to defeat Santa Anna just weeks later at the Battle of San Jacinto.
