SIEGE OF BEXAR DESCENDANTS The Battle of San Antonio, 1835

Updated September 18, 2007

About Our Family Research


The victory won by the vastly outnumbered men served to impede the progress of Santa Ana's Mexican Army, giving the Texians more time to prepare for the perilous days ahead.

The Battle of the Alamo occurred the following March, the small group of courage defenders being massacred by hordes of Mexicans.

In April 1836, glvanized by the Mexican brutality at the Alamo and in other areas as well, Sam Houston's outnumbered but determined men soundly thrashed the enemy in less that twenty minutes to win freedom for Texas.

Goals of this heritage organization, founded in 1989, are to preserve Texas History and artifacts as well as sponsor educational projects.

Descendants meet annually in San Antonio every December.

To be eligible for membership, a person must show documented proof that his/her ancestor participated in the "Battle for San Antonio".
