Remember the Alamo by Bogie-DJ Remember the Alamo by Bogie-DJ
I made this map of the Alamo for a contest on the Cartographer's Guild.  For the contest we had to make a map based on a song.  I chose the "Ballad of the Alamo".  The building is an accurate representation of the Chapel, but the battlefield around it is just an estimation.  There are other buildings to the left of the chapel that I have not included.

Remember Goliad, too!

(They never made a song about Goliad, though)

I must admit that I was unfamiliar with the battles and the massacre at Goliad.  However, Wikipedia has several articles about it.

Yup. Supposedly at the battle of San Jacinto the Texan battle cr ways, "Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad!"

They were pretty pissed off at both of those events.  But the Alamo is most well-known because, "let's all fight to the death against insurmountable odds to give our comrades time to form a real army" is more heroic than, "I'm going to defy my commander's orders until it's too late and get myself and my men all killed like dogs"
