Exciting Find for Researchers in Alamo Plaza

An exciting find in Alamo Plaza.

That’s where researchers who are trying to figure out if they’ve have found an original part of the Alamo’s south wall can say for sure they’ve come across a piece of history.

“One of the things we have uncovered in part of this is the tip of a Mexican sword” archaeologist Nesta Anderson said Thursday Morning.

“It would have been issued to a non-commissioned officer in the Mexican infantry” Anderson said of the sword tip–which has been dated back to 1835.

As to how the tip got there–or how it was broken away from the rest of the sword–that’s an unanswered question.

“It may pre-date the battle–and could have been used during that fortification construction” Anderson said, quickly adding “It also may have been used in the battle.”
