To the Texas Legislature: Acquire Alamo Plaza from the City of San Antonio

"The General Land Office believes that Alamo Plaza is vital to accurately portraying the story of the Alamo and that these properties should be under the same authority." said to the Alamo Plaza Advisory Committee on May 28, by GLO Chief Clerk and Deputy Land Commissioner Larry Laine. The Alamo must become whole again. The Alamo is more than the state owned church, and the battlefield is much more than San Antonio's Alamo Plaza. The City of San Antonio has never treated the battlefield they call Alamo Plaza with respect to honor the patriots who died there. It's time we became defenders, took action, recognized the Alamo battlefield of 1836 with respect, and made the Alamo whole again, sacred ground. When I wrote our Governor, he told me the power to do this rests with the legislature. The State MUST do this.

      Because the current state of the Plaza is disgraceful.

      This is the most revered historical site in Texas and should not be owned by one city in part or wholly. The Alamo needs to be treated as a historical treasure and stop making senseless changes to the structure. It is not a Disney land venue.

      The history of our country is falsely being covered over and lost forever the Alamo must not suffer the fate of many historic battlefields, it must be saved !

      I feel it is important for people to be able to view the old perimeter of the walls of the Alamo. And the whole area where our patriots died needs to be set apart as a special place, a reserve, a sacred site. We don't need a restaurant or people hawking souvenirs from a cart in the plaza. Possibly a section of the outer wall could be built as a replica. Some businesses would have to be moved and a street closed. But that is a small price to see that ground held sacrosanct by the people of Texas and the world.
