The Battle of the Alamo is the most well-known military engagement in Texas history. After Texans revolted and took control of San Antonio in 1835, the Mexican army, under Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, marched more than 600 miles to Texas and laid siege to the former Spanish Mission for 13 days before a final, deadly assault on March 6, 1836. The battle proved consequential and was one in a series of pivotal events that led to Texan independence from Mexico and a short-lived republic before Texas was annexed by the United States nine years later.
