The Alamo, in partnership defender descendants, Casa Navarro State Historic Site, UTSA's Center for Archaeological Research, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and the Bexar County Heritage Center, invites you to join us for a special event on Saturday, April 15th, 2023, as we honor the birthday of Tejano hero Toribio Losoya.
Born on land belonging to Mission Valero de San Antonio, Toribio Losoya was destined to fight for a free Texas. He made his last stand at the Battle of the Alamo in 1836, where he fought valiantly alongside other defenders of the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
On the 2nd annual Toribio Losoya Day, we will celebrate his bravery and honor his contribution to the Texas Revolution. Losoya's descendants will lay 27 roses in his memory - one for each year of his life - at a 10 a.m. tribute.
This free event is appropriate for all ages. It will feature an exciting history program with interactive educational stations and hands-on Casa Navarro State Historic staff demonstrations.
Come to the Alamo and learn about one of San Antonio's most revered heroes. Discover Toribio Losoya's story, impact on Texas history, and sacrifice for freedom.
We look forward to seeing you at the Toribio Losoya Day celebration!
