The Alamo Cenotaph

The Alamo Cenotaph, also known as The Spirit of Sacrifice, was completed in 1939 to honor those who died at the Battle of the Alamo. On its sides, one can see engravings of William Travis and James Bonham. The structure rises to 60 feet and was the work of Italian-born sculptor Pompeo Coppini.

The marker reads: “Erected 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 of Texas.”
