PRESS RELEASE — Feb 26, 2019

SAN ANTONIO — As the Alamo commemorates the 183rd anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo, we are excited to invite you to The Immortal 32 Arrive!

This special event honors the 32 men from Gonzales who answered William Barret Travis’ pleas for reinforcements on March 1, 1836. These heroic men would join the woefully undermanned Texas garrison and ultimately sacrifice their lives only days later in the Battle of the Alamo.
