On the 182nd anniversary of an assault that ended a 13-day siege, a commemoration ceremony will remember the fall of the Alamo.
A memorial service for the "Heroes of the Alamo" will take place on the Alamo grounds from 2-3 p.m Wednesday, March 6.
The program, which is presented in partnership with the Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, will honor the heroes of the Alamo, according to the Alamo's event's page.
The ceremony will feature a performance from the 323d Army Band from Fort Sam Houston, as well as a roll call of the nations and states where each defender came from.
On March 6, 1836, Mexican troops led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna launched their attack on the mission, killing the hundreds of Texians stationed at the Alamo.
"Remember the Alamo" became a battle cry of the Texian army, which was able to defeat Mexican forces at the Battle of San Jacinto, forming the Republic of Texas.
In the 182 years since the now-legendary battle, the Alamo has become an official Texas State Shrine, as well as the most popular tourist site in Texas.
