Spanish settlers built the Mission San Antonio de Valero, named for St. Anthony of Padua, on the banks of the San Antonio River around 1718. They also established the nearby military garrison of San Antonio de Béxar, which soon became the center of a settlement known as San Fernando de Béxar (later renamed San Antonio). The Mission San Antonio de Valero housed missionaries and their Native American converts for some 70 years until 1793, when Spanish authorities secularized the five missions located in San Antonio and distributed their lands amongst local residents.

In its history, it is a battle where everybody dies and you can now go visit the Alamo in Second Life.

UT Arlington in Second Life is delighted to have the opportunity to host "The Alamo" - a realistic 3D, online, immersive re-creation of the modern-day Alamo.
Go visit the site today and also read up on it.
