This documentary recounts the legendary Battle of the Alamo, where hopelessly outnumbered American soldiers--including heroes Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William Barrett Travis--lost their lives to General Santa Ana's Mexican troops after 13 days of intense fighting.
A comprehensive and fascinating documentary about the site of one of America's most famous struggles -- the Alamo. The video uses first-person accounts, dramatic reenactments and archival footage to help tell the story of the 189 Americans who desperately tried to fight off the 4,000-man army of Mexican dictator Santa Anna. Among the famous people you'll learn about are Davy Crockett, William Barret Travis and Jim Bowie.
