The Battle of the Alamo began in San Antonio, Texas.
The siege lasted for a total of thirteen days.
The Alamo Mission was a mission founded in 1718 in the San Antonio area of Texas and was designed to educate the Native Americans.
The name “alamo” is the Spanish word for “cottonwood,” as there was an area full of cottonwood trees near to the Alamo Mission.
As a result, the battle which took place here was aptly named “The Battle of the Alamo.”
