With its beginning as a simple Spanish mission run by Franciscan missionaries, the Alamo, which was turned into a military post, is widely recognized as a symbol of heroic courage in the struggle against oppression. On March 6, 1836, after a thirteen day siege, the small, outnumbered garrison, which proudly and wholeheartedly fought Santa Anna's forces, was defeated. That defeat, however, stirred the souls of Sam Houston's Texian Army which spurred victory at San Jacinto securing Texas' independence.
This ¾" thick wooden replica of The Alamo is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our trademark black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
