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.

Name Meaning

English (chiefly Devon): occupational name for a soapmaker, from an agent derivative of Middle English sōpe ‘soap’ (apparently of Celtic origin). The process involved boiling oil or fat together with potash or soda.
