  • The second day of the siege began early with the Texians facing a newly established battery erected by the Mexicans during the night. The battery consisted of two eight-pounders and a howitzer and was located approximately 400 yards to the west of the fort. It was known as the River Battery.

  • The morning of February 25, 1836 dawned with summer-like temperatures opening one of the most eventful days of the siege. The Mexicans launched an attack with approximately 400 - 450 soldiers personally led by General Castrillon.
  • February 28, 1836
  • The Texians burned more jacales during the night. It soon became obvious that the Alamo's water well would not supply the needs of a 150+ people in the garrison. They would have to obtain water from the nearby acequia.
