March,6 1836 Texas On March 6, 1836, Mexican cannon fire smashed the Alamo's walls. The Mexican army was too large to hold back. They entered the fortress, killing all the defenders, including Travis, Crockett, Bowie, and a number of Tejanos.
The Texans had only about 180 soldiers to take on Santa Anna's army of several thousand. The Texans did have brave leaders, however, including folk hero Davy Crockett, commander William B. Travis, and a tough Texan named Jim Bowie. For 13 long days, through several attacks, the defenders of the Alamo kept Santa Anna's army at bay with rifle fire.
The Alamo defenders had been defeated, but they had bought the Texans time to gather troops and supplies. They had also provided the Texans with a rallying cry: "Remember the Alamo!"
