    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 the Middle English personal name Segar, Segor, Sagar (Old English Sǣgār, from ‘sea’ + gār ‘spear’). Variants of its medieval forms may sometimes have been identical with those of Sigger (see Seago ), leading to confusion of the two names.

    Americanized form of German Seeger .
