    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: from Middle English sterre ‘star’ (Old English steorra), used, like the Old Norse Stjarna, as a nickname, but also occasionally as a personal name. The word was also used in a transferred sense of a patch of white hair on the forehead of a horse, and so perhaps the nickname denoted someone with a streak of white hair. This surname has been established in Ireland since the 17th century.English: in addition, the name may occasionally also have been topographic or habitational, referring to a house or inn distinguished by the sign of a star (see 2 above). Surnames derived from house and inn signs are rare in English.Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Star 1 and 3.
