Since the climactic battle on March 6, 1836, we have lost 80% of the Alamo. This loss began immediately after the battle and has continued over the centuries. Its mission structures, walls and battlements and gate are gone. What should be clearly marked, hallowed ground is covered up by a busy plaza and street. The Alamo is unable to fully tell its incredible story with accuracy, clarity and purpose. The plan makes the Alamo the reverent destination it deserves to be.
