This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States - The Battle of the Alamo. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
In December 1835, during Texas’ war for independence, a group of Texan volunteer soldiers occupied the Alamo, a former Franciscan mission located near the present-day city of San Antonio.
On February 23, 1836, a Mexican force numbering in the thousands and led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna began a siege of the fort. Though vastly outnumbered, the Alamo’s 200 defenders, commanded by James Bowie and William Travis, held out courageously for 13 days before the Mexican invaders finally overpowered and massacred them.
For Texans, the Battle of the Alamo became an enduring symbol of their heroic resistance to oppression and their struggle for independence, which they won later that year.
