Enlarge The Alamo Church (or Shrine), view looking east. The internationally recognized facade and the two upper corner windows were added by the US Army around 1850. The visitors in the far right of the picture are standing close to where Crockett and his Tennessean's defended the cedar palisade wall. The rock structure extending from the south wall of the church was constructed several years after the siege
