Antonio Lopes de Santa Anna de Lebron claimed that 600 Alamo defenders were killed at the battle. This was certainly an exaggeration to increase his prestige. The numbers vary, but the low end is probably at least 180 and it may have been as many as 275. Surviving were at least seven and perhaps as many as sixteen.
