On March 6, 1836, 189 Texians and Tejanos gave their lives at the Alamo for Texas liberty.
In 2011, the Texas Legislature tasked the Texas General Land Office with management and preservation of the Alamo and today, it remains under the custodianship of Commissioner George P. Bush.
The effort to preserve and restore the Alamo began in 2015 and has undergone intense debate and discussion. In January of 2019, Alamo Plaza was finally reunified with the Alamo Church and Long Barrack, and efforts began to reclaim the historic 1836 Battlefield.
The story of the Alamo is world renowned and represents the core of Texas’ identity today. The ongoing effort to restore dignity and reverence to the Alamo is underway.
