Palisade Exhibit unveiled at The Alamo

SAN ANTONIO – A new experience that brings one of the key locations of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo to life was unveiled Friday with a ceremony for the Palisade Exhibit.

According to a news release, the exhibit is a partial reconstruction of a fence-like fortification used during the historic battle.

Located approximately where it was during the battle, it is believed that David Crockett fought at the Palisade, a news release said. The exhibit will also feature a four-pounder bronze cannon replica.

The Palisade joins the Alamo’s 18-Pounder Losoya House as the second recreated portion of the fort during the battle.

The two exhibits help give visitors a greater understanding of where the fighting took place in what is Alamo Plaza today.

KSAT12 news anchor Myra Arthur served as the emcee for the event. Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick were guest speakers.
