Texas - San Antonia, The Alamo Patio

Patio at the Alamo
San Antonio, Texas
Erected in 1718 as a church and fortress, it became the symbol of Texas Independence.  During the Texas-Mexican independence war in 1836 it was defended and lost to the last Texan.  Soon "Remember the Alamo" became synonymous with Texas Independence.

This is postmarked in 1982.
