Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

Name Meaning

English: nickname from Middle English boggish ‘boastful’, ‘haughty’ (a word of unknown origin, perhaps akin to Germanic bag and bug, with the literal meaning ‘swollen’, ‘puffed up’). The name (in the forms Boge(y)s, Boga(y)s) is found in the 12th century in Yorkshire and East Anglia, and also around Bordeaux, which had trading links with East Anglia.
