How did the Alamo affect the Texans independence?

While tactically insignificant for Mexico & strategically useless for the Texian Army, the Alamo nonetheless effectively pissed off every single inhabitant of Texas & created a unified front against Mexican aggression, despite the battle ending with a Texian loss. Beneficially for Texan Indepence, the Alamo became a rallying cry & motivation for Texian soldiers during battle.

What is less widely known is how the Goliad Massacre of Texian POW's & its aftermath affected the Texas War for Independence, becoming a rallying cry in much the same way as did the Alamo.

"Remember the Alamo!" & "Remember Goliad" were heard on the battlefield of San Jacinto by Texians under General Sam Houston, a battle which ended the war & brought about establishment of the Republic of Texas.

What did the people wear at the Alamo?

Well it really depended on where that person was from. Like Davy Crockett most likely wore a leather vest because he was from outback were the people there mostly wore what animals provided. I recommend you watch John Wayne's The Alamo and the new The Alamo. Both very good movies with accurate ways those men wore back then.

What is the importance of the Alamo?

It signified American spirit and gave us the motivation to conquer Texas from the Mexicans and make it one of the 50 states. If your looking for an answer of the physical building, the Alamo was a great fortress to ward off the attacking Mexicans because of it's strategic location. Unfortunately the reason we lost the mission was because we had run out of ammo and was forced to fight without bullets, so we fought by using our guns as clubs. The one thing we didn't do was surrender.

Because he was in the hospital. The Alamo was surrounded. Destroying the Alamo meant killing all inside which is what the end result was anyway. By not destroying it, they were able to take more Mexican soldiers with them hence weakening Santa Anna's army.

How many men died at the Alamo?

Very few of the 189 men at the Alamo were actually natives of Texas. A great number of them were from Southern states, such as Tennessee, Kentucky and the Carolinas. At least 32, in fact, came from Tennessee. Some northerners from Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York also stood their ground in the mission. But Europeans were also well represented. At least ten of the patriots were natives of England, and another 11 were from Ireland, a country that knew well the struggle for liberty against oppression. Of the thirty-plus Europeans, some also came from Germany, Denmark, Scotland and Wales.

At the time of the battle, as many as eighty of the Alamo defenders were actually documented residents of Texas, but others had traveled to the fort from various states, volunteering their services for the revolution. Of the estimated 189 men who died in the Alamo, only six were actually born in Texas: Juan Abamillo, Juan A. Badillo, Carlos Espalier, Gregorio Esparza, Antonio Fuentes, and Andrés Nava. This work shall pay tribute to the Tejanos who died at the Alamo:
