It was upon this spot in 1836 that the Mexican General Santa Anna massed his army of 2,600 Mexicans for their last desperate and fatal assault upon that devoted band of Patriots who, beneath the hoary arches of the Alamo, fought for Texas and freedom until the last man had yielded up his life's blood."
