Remember the Alamo
Today is the anniversary of the famous Battle of the Alamo. I was first aware of this important event in Texan history from the 1960 John Wayne epic The Alamo. What I didn't realise was they built a three quarter scale replica of the famous mission building for the film. On a slightly more practical scale for us wargamers is an excellent 25mm model of the Alamo complex by Hudson & Allen. If you want to replay the battle on a very tight budget (like me) then try the FREE downloadable game Charge at the Alamo by Richard Trevino.
