Remember the Alamo, Or Whatever You Think Belongs There

This Texas Monthly profile of recent goings-on around the Alamo is pretty bonkers, combining a fanatical Alamo memorability collector Phil Collins (yep, that one), scheming awful Texas politicians, battles over urban redevelopment, and a whole lot of fraud.

Every time I’ve been around the Alamo, weird shit has happened, from Mexican dudes in Spurs gear flashing gang signs for pictures (talk about the reconquista) to Black American Revolution reenactors, to oddball local ceremonies that included the only time I’ve ever heard people cheer the Confederate flag. The site itself is just a tiny little mission and uninteresting compared to the farther out missions run by the National Park Service. But Texans are Texans and deeply committed to their historical racism.
