The Battle of the Alamo lasted 13 days, from February 23, 1836-March 6, 1836. In December 1835, Texas volunteer soldiers occupied the Alamo, a former mission located near San Antonio, Texas.
By February, a Mexican force led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna numbering in the thousands began a siege of the fort. Incredibly outnumbered, the roughly 200 defenders of the Alamo which included Jim Bowie, William Travis and Davy Crockett held them off for 13 days before being over run and slaughtered. During the Texas War for Independence against Mexico “remember the Alamo”, became the battle cry and enduring symbol of their resistance and their struggle for independence, which was won later that year. The battle cry of “remember the Alamo” became more popularized during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.
