The photographs here are of participants in a reenactment called the Fall Of The Alamo performed in 2015. It is staged every year to commemorate events which occurred in 1836 leading to Texas Independence. Texans are proud of the sacrifices made at the Alamo and other battles in the struggle for independence from Mexico. The events draw large crowds to the Alamo every year. This year the programs will be on March 5 all day with a dawn wreath laying ceremony on the 6th.
