On February 16 see the presentation, "Remember the Alamo!" The Alamo was originally established as a Catholic mission in the eighteenth century. It was eventually converted into a military compound and in 1836 the Mexican army slaughtered its Texan defenders, during a key battle of the Texas Revolution. "Remember the Alamo!" became a rallying cry as the Republic of Texas successfully fought for its independence.
