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: from a Middle English pet form of the female personal name Emma, introduced into England from France by the Normans, among whom it was extremely popular. The name is of Germanic origin, probably originating as a hypocoristic form of women's names with a first element ermin ‘entire’.
