Remember the AlamoDVD
Davy Crockett, William Barret Travis, and Jim Bowie were just three of the heroes involved in the historic Battle of the Alamo. But this documentary goes deeper, telling not only the story of one of the most mythologized battles in American history, in which 189 Americans tried to fight off the 4,000-strong Mexican army, but also exploring the history behind the conflict: one of brother turned against brother as two budding countries vied over an important piece of land. First-person accounts, dramatic reenactments, and archival footage buttress this 2004 study of American-and Mexican-history.
