Summary
Although 'Remember the Alamo' remains among history's most enduring rallying cries, it's also a safe bet that a national poll would reveal that a stunning percentage of those familiar with the phrase hold only a vague notion of its origins. The History Channel Presents: The Alamo aims to remedy this imbalance in four programs that lay siege to and ultimately explode preconceived notions of the abandoned mission that would attain mythical status in the drive to bring statehood to Texas. 'Remember the Alamo' (90 minutes) aggressively deconstructs the Alamo myths, employing new research to present a clearer picture of the events surrounding the standoff between Mexican general Santa Anna's troops and a band of Tejano and Anglo-Texan volunteers, including Col. William Barret Travis, Davy Crockett, and Jim Bowie. The strained collaboration of these three is the focus of 'The Real West: The Battle for the Alamo' (50 min.), narrated by Kenny Rogers
