“This Hallowed Ground” is a walking tour of the original perimeter walls of the Alamo. This event is sponsored by the Alamo Chapter of the Sons of the Republic of Texas with support from the San Antonio Living History Association. Living historians interact with the tour leader to enhance the tour experience. The tour also features maps that illustrate the original fortress, show cannon locations, the location of the main gate and archaeological findings that have taken place over the years. After the tour there will be a brief award ceremony for middle school students who were winners in the SRT poster and essay contest. SRT members are descendants of those who resided in Texas during the Republic era, from 1836 to 1846.
