March is Texas History Month

The Martyrs of the AlamoThis month celebrate the rich history of Texas and commemorate the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo with a special screening of the 1915 silent film The Martyrs of the Alamo at the Bullock Museum. This is the earliest surviving film to depict the 1836 standoff between Texian volunteers and Santa Anna’s Mexican forces. The film’s historical biases illuminate how 100 years have changed perspectives on that critical event in the fight for Texas’s independence.

This special screening will be accompanied live by The Invincible Czars, presenting their original score for this silent film classic.
