This clip is posted here to promote the purchase of the full length film about a great moment in American history which is all but forgotten today. Look for a DVD with the special feature on the making of this great move. John Wayne had a passion for the story of the Alamo, and went to great lengths to make this movie with a cast of thousands of extras. Nothing digital here!

Before the New York Trade Center was attacked, we remembered Pearl Harbor. Before Pearl Harbor, we remembered the Alamo where from February 23, through March 6, 1836, 153 men stood against tyranny of General Santa Anna and his battle-hardened Mexican army of 7,000. Today it is easy to overlook the great cost of liberty and freedom in the history of the United States. Beyond the movie, learn about the real Alamo, and the bravery of liberty-loving souls who stood hopelessly outnumbered, laying down their lives for the hope of a better tomorrow. This clip John Wayne's passion for the Alamo is clear as he expresses in the character of Davy Crockett, what the word "republic" means to him
