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

(2007: 143; 2010: 166)English: from the Middle English personal name Algar, representing the falling together of two Old English names, Ælfgār and Æthelgār, composed of the elements respectively ælf ‘elf’ or æthel ‘noble’ + gār ‘spear’. It could also be from the much rarer Old English personal name Ealdgār, composed of elements meaning ‘old’ + ‘spear’. In East Anglia, it is more probably a variant of Alger (Old Norse Álfgeirr). See also Agar , Elgar .
