On March 6, 1836, 189 Texians and Tejanos gave their lives at the Alamo for Texas liberty. Their sacrifice deserves reverence and honor. Since 2011, the Texas General Land Office manages and preserves the Alamo on behalf of the people of Texas.
Under Commissioner George P. Bush’s leadership, the GLO, the city of San Antonio and Texans of goodwill are working together in a historic effort to restore the Alamo, recapture the 1836 battlefield, and reinforce the Alamo’s amazing story of sacrifice and heroism.
The next few years will be some of the most exciting in the Alamo’s history.
