    It’s the story of Texas and the people that were here before, during and after the Battle foe the Alamo.

    I am excited to visit the Battle for Texas Experience because it brings the history of the Alamo to life and helps people to better understand what happened there.

    I think this would be a great experience for my 11 and 3 year old daughters. Sounds like a lot of fun and learning going on, love it!


    I read the introductory part or introduction of who were the Tejano and was floored to read the inaccurate, erroneous description describing a Tejano was a Mexican.
    Tejanos emerged, evolved and developed around the latter part of the 1600’s during the early New Spain Spanish colonial period, long before the Country of Mexico was established in 1924. Tejanos along with Spanish criollos, gauchupines rebelled against the mother country Spain and declared their Independence at the Governors Palace April 6, 1813. Tejanos once again on March 2, 1836, were involved in the Declaration of Independence, this time against the recently formed Mexican government. So to print a misleading statement suggesting Tejanos born in a Tejas were, are Mexican is not only wrong but dawn right disrespectful to all Tejanos, especially this proud Tejano from Corpus Christi.
    Let’s not continue misleading the public by saying Tejanos are Mexican Texan or Texas Mexican.
    Let’s set the record straight once and for all please, Tejanos are Tejas born and bred, not Mexican anything.

      Thanks for your comment, Mr. RudyTejano Pena. Do you have links to the source of this information? I’ve never heard anyone define Tejanos as you have above and I am open to learning more.
