Typically on July 4th, tens of thousands of visitors come to the Alamo and learn about U.S. and Texas history through annual Independence Day demonstrations and history talks. Due to COVID-19, this year's July 4th programming will be an online-only, virtual celebration!

This virtual event will feature history talks, patriotic musical performances by Alamo Living Historians and Fort Sam Houston's 323d Army Band, militia drills, and a firing demonstration. The history talks will delve into subjects like Spain's participation in the American Revolution through the Granaderos y Damas de Gálvez, the annexation of Texas and connections to the Mexican-American War, and a comparison between the U.S. and Texas Declarations of Independence.

Videos will be posted throughout the weekend, teaching viewers about the connections between Texas, the Alamo, and July 4th.
