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

1 English: of uncertain origin. Most probably a habitational name from Shocklach in Cheshire, named in Old English with sceocca ‘goblin’, ‘evil spirit’ + læcc ‘boggy stream’. In the 17th century, the name was most common in Buckinghamshire, England.2 Perhaps also an Americanized form of Swiss German Schoechli, a topographic name meaning ‘barn’, from a diminutive of Schoch .
