In San Antonio, Texas sits the famous Alamo. The Alamo was the site of an epic battle that took place in 1836 between the Republic of Texas and the Mexican Republic. The men fighting for the Republic of Texas were severely outnumbered with about 200 men versus over 1,800 soldiers with the Mexican Republic. When the battle concluded, every one of the Republic of Texas fighters laid dead while the Mexican Republic lost approximately 600 men. The battle would go down in history as one of the most famous battles on American soil. The men who fought for Texas were given hero's honors as folk lore was created. The most famous man to fall at the Alamo was Davy Crockett.
With so much blood shed during the violent clash, it is no surprise that the Alamo is said to be haunted. Reports of paranormal activity date back to just months after the famous battle occurred. To this day, the haunting's still persist. Sounds of gun fire and yelling can be heard. Many have reported smelling gun powder or seeing flashes from its muzzle. Apparitions appear out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly, surprising and frighting visitors who happen to witness it.
Sadly, the bodies of the dead were never given a proper burial. Some were burned, others were tossed in unmarked graves, none were identified. This is said to cause much of the unrest with the spirits haunting the Alamo.
I have never wanted to visit a place more than the Alamo. It is another spot I hope to check out as soon as this lock down is over.
