Music of the Alamo

Includes a CD featuring Alamo music from the 1800s to the present!

The story of the famous siege and battle of the Alamo has been told in prose, poetry, art, film, and staged productions for over 170 years. And it has been told in song.

For 13 days in 1836, a small band of Texian and Tejano defenders, including Davy Crockett, William B. Travis, and Jim Bowie, stood their ground inside the Alamo against an overwhelming Mexican force. The valiant struggle of the gallant garrison would resonate from sea to shining sea in the decades that followed.

From 19th century folk ballads, minstrel show tunes and orchestral marches to recent pop chart hits, children's songs, theatrical productions and big-screen film scores, every generation has heard melodies that helped them "Remember the Alamo!" Music of the Alamo traces the many and varied musical interpretations of the Alamo and its heroes, and illuminates various periods of American musical history.

Music of the Alamo: From 19th Century Ballads to Big-Screen Soundtracks traces the musical history of the Alamo and offers the only complete discography and detailed title list of written or recorded songs about the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
