The “Victory or Death” letter written to ask for re-enforcements to the Alamo has returned to the place where it was written.

The Travis letter, which was written in 1836 before the fort was placed under siege and eventually fell to Mexican forces, has returned to San Antonio for the first time since it was sent to rally like minded Americans to the cause of Texan Independence.

The letter is being displayed at the Alamo Church from February 23 until March 7, 2013.

The Exhibit will be available for public viewing from 9:00 am – 5:30 pm, all 7 days of the week until March 7.

Cameras are not allowed to help preserve the document by minimizing its exposure to damaging lights.
