Summary: Retells the story of the historic 1836 battle in the Texan War of Independence. Facing 4,000 Mexican troops, 186 Texan soldiers and volunteers - including William Travis, Davy Crockett, and Jim Bowie - retreat within the walls of the Alamo, a Franciscan mission that was converted into a military fort. Once inside, the men prepare themselves for what will be a bloody battle to the death. U.S. General Sam Houston leads the charge from the outside. The Texans held the fort for 13 days under siege by General Santa Anna
Special features: audio commentary with historians Alan Huffines and Stephen Hardin; walking in the footprints of heroes: learn about David Crockett, William Travis, Jim Bowie and Sam Houston; deleted scenes with optional commentary by John Lee Hancock; return of a legend: the making of 'The Alamo' - a behind-the-scenes look; deep in the heart of Texans
