Who fought at the Alamo and how was it caused?
Santa Anna responded by sending his army north to crush the rebellion, and many of the Texans found that they did not have the manpower to fight the Mexican Army that Santa Anna had raised and quickly searched for some structure they could use as a fort. They found an old Spanish mission in San Antonio, the Alamo and held out there for reinforcements and more supplies
