    The Alamo Mission, often known simply as "The Alamo", is a Catholic mission and fortress located in San Antonio, Texas, and was the site of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo. Initially built by the Spanish Empire in 1744 to educate local native americans after their conversion to Christianity, the mission was secularized and abandoned in 1793. Ten years later, it became a makeshift fortress occupied by Mexican soldiers, who held the fort until December 1835, when it was surrendered to the Texan army. Texan General Sam Houston believed the Texans did not have the manpower to hold the fort and ordered Colonel James Bowie to destroy it. Bowie chose to disregard those orders and instead worked with Colonel James C. Neill to fortify the mission.

    On February 23, 1836 Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna led a large force of Mexican soldiers into San Antonio de Bexar and promptly initiated a siege. The siege ended on March 6, when the Mexican army attacked the Alamo; by the end of the Battle of the Alamo all, or almost all, of the defenders were killed. At the Battle of San Jacinto, Sam Houston rallied his army in a surprise attack against the Mexican army with cries to not forget the tragedies at the Alamo, or of the Goliad massacre. The Mexican army was routed in 18 minutes, Santa Anna was wounded, and the revolution was won. Today, the Alamo still operates as a museum in downtown San Antonio, and is a vital entity in Texan history and culture.
