Ride For Texas Independence Celebrated

180 years later–Colonel William Travis’ call for help is again headed from the Alamo to Washington on the Brazos.

A rider on horseback left Wednesday Morning with that call–as local and State leaders celebrated at the Shrine to Texas Freedom.

“The Alamo isn’t just part of our past–it’s part of our future” said Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, adding “It isn’t just where we were born as a people, but where we come together.”

Bush was among those taking part in the festivities–looking ahead to what tomorrow holds.

“We joined with the City of San Antonio to develop a joint master plan for the Alamo Historic District and the Alamo Complex” Bush said, a message echoed by Mayor Ivy Taylor.

“Because of the unity and spirit of cooperation that surrounds this sacred site, we’ll soon see a complete historic interpretation of the Alamo–and all it represents” Taylor said, adding there’s more to come for San Antonio’s “story.”

“It’s a story that we are still writing as San Antonio’s economy and population continue to grow and diversify” Taylor said.
