The Battle of The Alamo Interactive Augmented Reality Experience
About The Battle Of The Alamo App
Recognized World-wide as one of the most famous battles in the U.S., the Battle of the Alamo is remembered as a heroic fight to the death against insurmountable odds. The thirteen-day siege by the Mexican Army was led by Mexican General Antonio López de Santa Anna, whose goal was to reclaim the Alamo Mission located on the outskirts of old San Antonio. Texans garrisoned in those already ancient walls of the Alamo fortress only numbered around 200 defenders.
Led by Colonel William Barret Travis, the Texans fought valiantly, but were ultimately dealt a crushing defeat at the hands of the over 1500-man Mexican Army. Early on the morning of March 6th, 1836, General Santa Anna took the Alamo by storm; the defenders died to a man; the Mexican army was delayed three weeks and suffered demoralizing casualties.
Some say, without this delay, and the losses inflicted upon Santa Anna’s army, Sam Houston might never have been able to plan and fight the Battle of San Jacinto–that short, decisive encounter that determined the fate of the American West. Today, Texans “Remember the Alamo” by honoring those that gave their lives defending the Mission San Antonio de Valero, known forever as the Alamo.

This app is truly a game changer if you’re interested in history. For the best experience, it’s definitely worth taking it to the actual Alamo. Obviously not everyone can do that, so it is also effective at home. The live action battlefield is pretty impressive to watch and gives a better sense of the scope of the battle than a diorama ever could. More updates would be nice.
