The Alamo DVD
For 13 days in early 1836, a band of about 100 independence-minded Texas settlers and their allies─among them Davy Crockett and co-commanders James Bowie and William Travis─defended a former mission in what is now downtown San Antonio from 1,500 Mexican soldiers before ultimately falling in battle. Now computer imagery brings firsthand accounts of the Battle of the Alamo to life in this installment from the History Channel's "What Went Down" series. 47 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
