Event Details

Every year since 1925, the Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters for the Republic of Texas (DRT) has staged the annual Pilgrimage to the Alamo. This is a memorial tribute to the Alamo Heroes and the heritage of Texas. A solemn wreath-bearing procession of historic, civic, patriotic, military and school groups depart from the Vietnam Memorial at the Tobin Center, at 3:30 p.m., and walk silently to the Alamo. Simultaneously, an authoritative voice intones the names of the Alamo defenders from inside the Alamo walls. Following the procession and placing of the wreaths on the Alamo greensward, a brief memorial service takes place. The Fiesta Military Coordinator delivers the address and the sounding of Taps ends the ceremony. 

 

The Alamo Mission Chapter, DRT, founded in 1905, exists to provide and protect the history of Texas. The Chapter perpetuates the memory of the men and women who achieved and maintained Texas Independence, encourages historical research and preservation, and celebrates Texas Honor Days.
