This is a picture of the front of the mission building.
Why is it that when ever a historical building is saved its by a group of women? 'The Daughters of the Republic of Texas' are responsible for saving what is left of the Alamo. If it is a revolutionary war historical spot, its the 'Daughters of the American Revolution.' When we were in Charleston, South Carolina, a lot of the historical sites were saved by the 'Daughters of the Confederacy.'
After we toured the Alamo, we went to the Buckhorn Saloon Museum.
This a picture of the animal heads that were all around the walls of the saloon. We had lunch there before going on to the Texas Ranger Museum. This museum was very interesting. It showed the whole history of the rangers. They also had a set up of a western town (perhaps what San Antonio looked like back then). Here are a couple more pictures.
It was a great day.
Today we went back to San Antonio to go to the River Walk.
It was not what we expected. We expected a lot of shops to walk through. Instead we found restaurant row. It was a disappointment for us.
Oh well, tomorrow we are going to visit the other 3 missions that are in the area.
