The location of the Alamo, its strategic importance, the historical figures involved, and the eventual outcome of the battle are all covered. After watching the videos, students will read an article which will provide a more historical background to the Texan Revolution and the causes of the war between Texas and Mexico. Santa Ana's famous order to take no prisoners during the Battle of the Alamo, the fall of the Alamo, and the eventual outcome of the Texas War of Independence are all covered in the reading.
