This temporary exhibit, developed in partnership with the Texas General Land Office and The Alamo, tells the story of the Tejano members of the Alamo garrison and their families. The exhibit also looks at the history of the Tejano community in San Antonio before the Alamo and acknowledges the service and sacrifice of Tejanos in the United States Armed Services.
We know the story of Susanna Dickinson, but there have been many other Tough Texas Women who have contributed to history. In this ongoing series presented by the Susanna Dickinson Museum, we explore the lives and accomplishments of these women. These are their stories.
Susanna Dickinson wasn't the only "Messenger of the Alamo." Learn the stories of the other women, children, and enslaved individuals who walked out of the carnage inside the Alamo, as well as the residents of San Antonio who dealt with the horrific aftermath of the battle.
