The Alamo

The Alamo redoute is now surrounded by buildings catering for tourists and a lot of it is extremely tacky. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas do a good job keeping the standards within the site.

I can't help but notice that although Santa Anna was eventually repulsed and the war won, Mexican is the dominant culture here....

Antonio López de Santa Anna himself would be proud of the security man ushering the Gringos.
