San Antonio's roots as the Military City run deep. Join us on Saturday, May 4, 2024, to learn about the many soldiers who have walked these hallowed Alamo grounds.

From the 18th century Spanish Presidial soldiers helping to keep the missions safe from outside raids to the Texian and Mexican armies that converged at the Alamo for the 1836 siege and Battle to the U.S. Army soldiers who used this site as a supply depot before and after the Civil War until the opening of Fort Sam Houston, the Alamo has countless stories to tell. Learn about the daily activities, training, and weapons of each era, as well as their respective impacts upon the Alamo grounds.

The smell of the gunpowder, the sound of military commands, the sight of the Alamo grounds swarming with historical activities await. Two hundred years of military history at your fingertips.
