feb 23, 1836 - The Battle of the Alamo
Travis set 21 cannons at the Alamo to
defend it, making it the most heavily
defended fortress in West North America,
however, they did not have enough men to
defend. Travis sent out what is now known
to be the most heroic document in history.
Every single Texan at the Alamo died.
