The Alamo invites you to celebrate San Antonio's deep military roots with Soldiers At The Alamo, a living history event where visitors will learn about the many soldiers who have walked the Alamo's hallowed grounds.

Soldiers At The Alamo will take place on Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Alamo's team of living historians will walk visitors through time, starting with the 18th-century Spanish Presidial soldiers who helped keep the mission safe, then the Texian and Mexican troops who converged for the 1836 Siege and Battle of the Alamo, and finally the U.S. Army soldiers who used the site as a supply depot before and after the Civil War.

These 200 years of military history at the Alamo paved the way for San Antonio's modern-day recognition as Military City USA. Learn about the daily activities, training, and weapons of each era, as well as their respective impacts upon the Alamo mission and fort.

Join us for this free, family friendly event that will have the Alamo grounds swarming with historical activities.
