THE BATTLE OF THE ALAMO: A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION

The Battle of the Alamo began on February 23, 1836, when Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas). The siege ended on March 6, 1836, when Mexican troops captured the mission and all the Texian defenders were killed. The massacre of the survivors inspired many Texas settlers—and some adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Their resolve hardened by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.
