What happened at the battle of Alamo?

The Battle of the Alamo followed a 13-day siege by the Mexican army (1,800 strong) against 189 defenders of the Alamo Mission in San Antonio, Texas, in 1836. The battle rallyed the Texas army and garnered support from America for the independence of Texas. The Texians wanted independence from Mexico, and the 189 defenders fought to the death for it. Santa Anna was the leader of the Mexican army and William B. Travis commanded the forces at the Alamo. It happened in San Antonio February 23 - March 6, 1836. Most historians agree that Mexican army casualties and losses numbered between 400 and 600, while all defenders of the Alamo were killed. However, some noncombatant slaves and women were spared, including Susanna Wilkerson Dickinson, her infant daughter, Juana Navarro Alsbury, her infant son, other Tejano women, and Travis's slave, Joe.
