MAIN PLAZA

Compound Plaza: Legend says that Colonel Travis delivered his “Line in the Sand” speech to the entire garrison in the open parade ground of the main Alamo plaza. Once the outer walls were overrun, the defenders engaged in a running firefight across the plaza as they retreated into the Long Barrack and the Church. Mexican soldiers turned Texian cannons around to blast open doors of the Long Barracks. With a closer look, you might recognize the “Come And Take It!” cannon as Mexican soldiers aim it at the Long Barrack.
