Overview

Remember the Alamo

In the 1830s, Texas was under the control of Mexico, but as an increasing number of Mexicans began to immigrate to Texas alongside the substantial community of Americans who had come to settle the territory, Mexico began to more aggressively assert its rule; however, the new American settlers began to chafe under Mexican authority, and the Mexican-Texans (or Tejanos) were forced to choose a side as the conflict grew into a war for Texan independence. The battle of the Alamo became a pivotal event in this conflict, and Remember the Alamo is a documentarythat looks at the events which led up to the battle, as well as its consequences. Produced for the PBS series The American Experience, Remember the Alamo aired in 2003 to coincide with the release of The Alamo, a fictional reworking of this true story.

I thought this would be better than it was. I love history and it looked interesting so I bought it. It's more of an alternate history. Some of the famous men who died at the Alamo and are key to the story, such as Davy Crockett, weren't profiled or even discussed. They focused on this one man Navarro whom most people probably have not heard of..The DVD was OK, but I would not call it great. I would not recommend it.
