Remember the Alamo!

The Battle for Texas Independence

Movements and Moments That Changed America

In 1830, many immigrants from the United States called Texas, then a territory of Mexico, home. These immigrants outnumbered Mexican citizens. The U.S. government offered to buy Texas. Instead, Mexico sent troops to keep more U.S. settlers from crossing the border. Tension mounted, as each side prepared to take a stand. Today, people often forget Texas was once part of Mexico, but the cry "Remember the Alamo" has lived on in history. Engaging text, informative sidebars, and fascinating images will help students discover how the battle for the Alamo was the first step toward Texas independence and statehood, and how this event has shaped the political climate since then.
