More than 200 people, many of whom were direct descendants of the garrison that defended the Alamo in 1836, gathered in front of the Cradle of Texas Liberty Wednesday morning for the annual Dawn at the Alamo ceremony. Each year on March 6, the gathering observes the final day of the 13-day siege, when Mexican soldiers took over the compound.
