During the Texan War of Independence, a small group of soldiers took shelter there, and for a while they were able to keep a large Mexican army of 3000 men at bay. Eventually all the 187 defenders were defeated and killed, but their courage galvanized the state and rallied the residents to eventually overcome the Mexicans. Today, the center is visited by close to 3 million people annually who come to see the restored mission and to commemorate the fallen Texans.
