New York's Defenders of the Alamo

Alamo Ruins The Alamo. Its name alone paints broads brush strokes of liberty and sacrifice across the canvas of the imagination. If one was asked to make a list of important engagements in military history where New Yorkers played a significant role, the Alamo would probably rank at the bottom, if mentioned at all. A number of New Yorkers, however, did step across William Travis' legendary line in the dust, thus entering their names into the annals of one of the most important events in American history.
