The battle for the Alamo has become one of the most famous conflicts in American history. In 1836, General Santa Ana led troops in a battle to defend the Alamo—a Spanish-built mission in San Antonio.

In THE LEGEND OF THE ALAMO, author Roy Sorrels narrates the battle for control between Texans and Mexicans.
