Alamo(1836): General Santa Anna marched his force to the Alamo to execute any foreign fighters they saw. A force of between 180 and 260 people waited. February 23rd, Santa Anna's troops surrounded the Alamo and lied siege to the defenders. Right after, the Mexican Army bombarded the mission. The Alamo defenders could only fight off the first two attacks but were overwhelmed by the third. The Texan Army attacked the Mexican Army and captured Santa Anna to force him to lead his troop back.
