In 2018, San Antonio will celebrate its 300th anniversary, and as part of that celebration, the Alamo is excited to announce the Alamo Tricentennial Lecture Series!
Each month, the Alamo will bring you experts who will explore the events, people, and themes that shaped the history of the Alamo, San Antonio, and Texas.
In commemoration of the 208th anniversary of the Grito de Dolores, the next lecture in our series will focus on a small revolution begun by a humble priest that would go onto change the course of North American history. Texas history is inexorably linked with Mexican history, and we will explore that connection through the Mexican Independence movement and the role played by Texas.
Ernesto Rodrigues III is native of San Antonio. He graduated with a Bachelor's and Master's Degree from St. Mary's University in San Antonio with a focus on the Spanish Borderlands. He is fluent in Spanish and is often called upon to translate old Spanish documents. He has worked at the Alamo since 1999 and is currently the Associate Curator.
This event costs $15 and includes a Jason's Deli lunch box.
