The Alamo is an American epic about one of the great mythic moments in U. S. history. The subject is the Texas Revolution, the critical event in the complex and gradual takeover of Northern Mexico by Anglo-Americans, which culminated in the Mexican War and fixed the territories of the two major nation-states of North America. Part Odyssey, part Iliad, part American western, The Alamo follows the linked but episodic adventures of its hero, William Barret Travis, and the legendary figures Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie through the siege and battle of the Alamo, as they lead a vastly out manned Texas army of independence against the charismatic and ruthless Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
