   StormCnter  And today, March 6, honors the thirteen-day Battle of the Alamo in 1836, valiant effort but doomed. Texans remember.

This daguerreotype is the oldest known image of the Alamo, taken in 1849

   Tulsa  I will never forget being in the Alamo. It is hallowed ground.

We are so thankful we experienced being there.

The Suit is a major history buff...can't wait to show him the daguerreotype. Thank you for posting.

   StormCnter  I should have credited the Robert Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, where this image is located.
