5. I think the Alamo is something everyone should see before they die. Also known as a home for Spanish missionaries followed by a battle site where a couple 100 Texans were killed as well as approximately 1600 Mexicans that were wounded or killed. In 1848 the Mexicans retreated but not before destroying the majority of walls and buildings. What’s left standing today is considered a public monument and a shrine to the heroes who tried defending it.
