Pictured is the Alamo Cenotaph, titled "The Spirit of Sacrifice." It stands in the spot where the slain defenders of the Alamo were piled and burned. Its inscription reads "in Memory of the Heroes who sacrificed their lives at the Alamo, March 6, 1836 in the defense of Texas, "They chose never to surrender nor retreat, these brave hearts with flag still proudly waving perished in the flames of immortality that their high sacrifice might lead to the founding on this Texas."
