  • About

    The Alamo has been the subject of numerous American works, including a Disney mini series and John Wayne’s The Alamo film. After launching an attack, Mexican soldiers killed every soldier over a 13 day siege of the former mission.

    “The reason there was silence after the battle of the Alamo was because the locals felt bad they didn’t assist the Alamo heroes. The other reason was, as they stacked the bodies and burned them, the skies darkened with black smoke and the buzzards swarmed, men were getting tired of stacking up bodies so they threw the remaining bodies into the river, which clogged up the river- all of which caused a lot of silence.”

    -Julian (U.S. Customs and Border Protection and former Alamo tour guide)
