Guests seated on benches watching a film in the Alamo Long Barrack

Enjoy some time in the Long Barrack for a special viewing of Season of Defeat, produced by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

It’s more important than ever that we remember the lives that were lost and sacrifices that were made to win the freedom we enjoy in Texas. In Episode 2 of our ‘Forging Texas’ film series, we tell the disturbing—and true—story of the Goliad massacre. More than 400 brave Texian prisoners of war were killed by Mexican Gen. Santa Anna’s troops, in defiance of the accepted rules of war. But the tyrant didn’t crush a rebellion, as he hoped. Instead, he added fuel to the flame of revolution. - Greg Sindelar, Chief Executive Officer, Texas Public Policy Foundation

Forging Texas is a compelling look at the lives, causes, and passion for freedom that drove Texas and the Texans to independence—and then to greatness. The story of the Texas Revolution is just as relevant in 2024 as it was in 1836.

This educational film is free of charge and is shown continuously throughout the day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. inside the Long Barrack.
