Battle for San Antonio

"The Storming of San Antonio"
December 5-10, 1835

The victory won by the vastly outnumbered men served to impede the progress of Santa Ana's Mexican Army, giving the Texians more time to prepare for the perilous days ahead.

The Battle of the Alamo occurred the following March, the small group of courageous defenders being massacred by hordes of Mexicans.

In April 1836, galvanized by the Mexican brutality at the Alamo, and in other areas as well, Sam Houston's outnumbered but determined men soundly thrashed the enemy in less than twenty minutes to win freedom for Texas.
