About this event
This rally is to honor the 32 Texican volunteers who left Gonzales on 27 February 1836 for the Alamo during the Texas Revolution. Two days later the detachment entered the Alamo which was commanded by William Barrett Travis and Jame Bowie. Except of Travis's boyhood friend, James B. Bonham, who arrived later that day, these heroes were the last men to enter the Alamo before it was over whelmed by Mexican forces under President/General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna on March 6 and all of the defenders were killed. This road rally will follow the approximate path of these doomed men from Gonzales to San Antonio (Bexar) but in reverse.
On the day of the event, 25 February 2023, participants will meet at Dellcrest Plaza, 1835 Texas Loop 13 (S WW White Road) and US 87 in southeast San Antonio st 1:00 PM. After completing a safety briefing, the rally will began the 90 minute rally at 2:01 PM. The route will visit Martinez, New Berlin before skirting Seguin and entering Gonzales from the south. The destination is the Gonzales Food Market on Hero's Square in Gonzales where the group will sample the award winning BBQ and discuss more local history.
