Alamo: The Price of Freedom, a film that reenacts one of the most famous battles of all time, resonates America’s heroic commitment to liberty. Alamo: The Price of Freedom has been hailed by historians as the most authentic re-creation of the epic 13-day struggle between 189 Texan patriots and the 5,000-man Mexican army of General Santa Anna. The closest thing to being in the Alamo during those fateful, historic days in 1836, the film boldly illustrates the true meaning of freedom through the actions of legendary figures such as Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie, James Butler Bonham, and the courageous Alamo freedom fighters. Viewers will experience the heartfelt, patriotic fire that inspired the Alamo defenders against insurmountable odds.
