In December 1835, during Texas’ war for independence from Mexico, a group of Texan volunteer soldiers occupied the Alamo, a former Franciscan mission located near the present-day city of San Antonio. On February 23, 1836, a Mexican force numbering somewhere between 1,800 and 6,000 men (according to various estimates) and led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna began a siege of the fort. Though vastly outnumbered, the Alamo’s 200 defenders, commanded by James Bowie and William Travis and including the famed frontiersman Davy Crockett, held out for 13 days before the Mexican forces finally overpowered them.
Our exciting new vision of the Alamo, designed to be both flexible & multifunctional, usable for many different scenarios & periods. Although the Alamo measures approx 1200mm x 1100mm, no single module is bigger than 200mm x 200mm. This makes transport and storage much less of an issue and also means you can use only sections of your set at any one time. This also presents you with a huge number of options to reconfigure the set for flexibility in how it looks and how you use it.
