"Standing Their Ground: Tejanos at the Alamo"

This special exhibit examines the role of Tejanos in defending the Alamo and helping to forge not only a nation but a unique cultural identity. It opens to the public Feb. 21 and runs through the "high holy days" at the Alamo, commemorating the 13-day siege that started on Feb. 23 and ended with every Alamo defender being killed by Mexican General Santa Anna's army March 6. The exhibit closes June 6, commemorating Juan Seguin and his fellow Tejano troops taking back possession of San Antonio from the Mexican army.
