Defenders in the Battle of the Alamo

Mexico was uneasy having such a large area as Texas with Increasing American immigrants, thus combined Texas with Coahuila, banned right of representation and banned further immigration to Texas.... The settlers kept coming.

'

The Defenders were a combination of Americans, native Texans (Tejanos), and European immigrants. The Defenders believed to have participated in the Battle of the Alamo, February 23 – March 6, 1836, of the Texians, are listed here. The Mexican forces had been ordered to draw no quarter. After killing all participants, General Santa Anna ordered the bodies to be burned.
