I've been to San Antonio a number of times but never bothered to stop by the Alamo. I was always under the impression that the famous building I've seen in pictures and movies was "the Alamo". WRONG! What I learned is the famous little building was actually the church that was inside the Alamo. The Alamo fort itself was much larger and some of the barracks remain standing today, though most of the original fort is gone. What remains is well-preserved and the museum and artifacts they have on-site are very impressive. You can learn the story of the Alamo just by walking around and reading the signs and displays. I highly recommend this for families, our children need to learn waht happened here and how people from all over our country (and many European countries too!) came to Texas and gave their lives fighting for freedom.
