Alamo, The

Испанская католическая миссия-крепость в г. Сан-Антонио, шт. Техас (основана в 1718), место героической обороны около 200 техасских повстанцев во время борьбы за независимость от Мексики 23 февраля - 6 марта 1836. Все защитники, включая легендарных Дэви Крокета [Davy (David) Crockett] и Джима Буи [Bowie, James (Jim)], погибли во время осады крепости четырехтысячным (по другим оценкам - 6-7 тыс. человек) отрядом мексиканцев во главе с генералом Санта-Ана. Мексиканцы потеряли около 1,5 тыс. человек. Клич "Помни Аламо!" [Remember the Alamo!] стал призывом к независимости Техаса. Миссия реставрирована и вместе с музеем истории Техаса входит в состав парка штата [state park]
