The Alamo: in Downtown San Antonio
What are the chances that we'd arrive at the Alamo on the exact anniversary of the seige? Well, 1:365 right? Pretty impressive in and of itself, but we also arrived at Gettysburg last year on the exact anniversary of that battle (a four-day window there). I guess we have some historic battle karma working for us. The Alamo provided us with a great springboard for learning about the history of the Spanish American war.
