Alamo hosts historical event to commemorate March 1, 1836

The free event featured the Mayor of Gonzales, Gonzales Children’s Choir and even some descendants of the men who fought.

SAN ANTONIO — The Alamo held an event Tuesday morning to mark a historical date: March 1, 1836. That's the day, "William Barret Travis’ pleas for reinforcements were answered by 32 men from Gonzales who rode through enemy lines to join the woefully undermanned Texas garrison," according to the Alamo.

The free event featured the Mayor of Gonzales, Gonzales Children’s Choir and even some descendants of the men who served.

"In the dawn hours of March 1st, the Gonzales Mounted Volunteers forged through a line of over 4,000 Mexican soldiers to become the only 32 men to relieve The Alamo. They would become known as the 'Immortal32,'" according to organizers of the "Come and Take It Celebration," which is a non-profit organization from Gonzales.
