Through photographs, illustrations, artwork and text, “Alamo Images” presents a story that has captivated several generations of audiences. The exhibition explores what the Alamo means to Texans and the role of Mexican-Texans in the Texas Revolution. Dozens of photographs and artworks give viewers of this exhibition interesting visuals to illustrate the history of the Alamo as mission, fort and shrine, as well as the drama of its siege and fall in March 1836.

 

The    Gillespie County Historical Society  presents “Alamo Images” as a means to promote ongoing dialogue about the significance of the Alamo as a Texas experience, as seen through its various representations in popular culture.
