Alamo Event: Béxar: December 1835, Prelude to the Alamo

December 8, 2008

Please join us for an after-hours event at the Alamo this coming Saturday, December 13th. During this program, visitors will be escorted through the grounds to view a series of historical vignettes designed to tell the story of the Battle of Béxar and the events that led to the second battle for San Antonio, the Battle of the Alamo.

During the Battle of Béxar in December 1835, Texian and Tejano forces overwhelmed the Mexican army and their leader, General Cos, and took possession of the city and an old fortified mission called the Alamo. General Santa Anna responded by moving his forces back to Texas and to San Antonio, leading to the siege and battle of the Alamo the following March.

The Saturday event will run from 6:30 pm until 10:30 pm. Groups will leave from the Alamo gift shop every fifteen (15) minutes, and each will spend approximately forty-five (45) minutes viewing the seven vignettes.

Space is limited, so purchase your tickets early. Individual ticket price is $9.00 until the day of the event; tickets purchased on Saturday will be $10.00 each. Tickets can be purchased at the Alamo or by calling 210-225-1391, ext. 28.

For ticket information, contact Assistant Curator Ernesto Rodriguez by email at or by phone at 210-225-1391, ext. 28.

For media information, contact Alamo Marketing and Development Manager Craig Stinson by email at or by phone at 210-225-1391, ext. 36.
