Remember the Alamo 1x57

In the early 1830s, Texas was about to explode. Although under Mexican rule, the region was home to more than 20,000 US settlers agitated by what they saw as restrictive Mexican policies. Mexican officials were prepared to fight hard to keep the province under their control. Caught in the middle were the area’s 4,000 Mexican Texans or Tejanos. With war on the horizon, the Tejanos chose to fight with their Anglo neighbors against an army sent by Mexico City. The conflict pitted brother against brother and devastated the community. This film shows the Tejano gamble for a more prosperous future in an independent Texas proved tragic.
