Age 34

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

Altered spelling of French Nicaise, which is from a personal name of Greek origin, Nikasios ‘victorious’, based on Greek nikē ‘victory’. This name was borne by three saints, and may have been considered to refer to spiritual victory over sin and death.
