The American Revolutionary War won independence for thirteen British colonies and founded the nation now known as the United States. However, this was not the only war fought that created the nation as we now know it. In the mid-1830s, Texas fought for its own independence from Mexico. Remember the Alamo was the rally cry of the Texan army in their final battle. While it has been nearly 200 years since that battle, Americans are still remembering that tragic and heroic day in American history in many ways. One can be by visiting The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. Our guest today is the Director of Education Sherri Driscoll. Also in today's episode we visit with BYU professor of Mexican History Evan Ward to better understand how the battle impacted the other side. We also cover a [brief] history of Texas and the many countries that have laid claim to that land (including Texas itself), and listen to a Special Compilation of different songs inspired by the Battle of the Alamo.
