One of the most famous last-stand battles couldn't have happened without a little technology--and we don't just mean guns, cannons, and missiles! The Mexican army also used music, uniforms, and other psychological operations to keep the Alamo defenders off guard. Inside the fort, outnumbered Texans watched the enemy advance, thanks to telescopes, while sharpening their Bowie knives and cleaning their Kentucky rifles in anticipation of the onslaught. The battle began before dawn, and we'll show you how combatants used technology to see in the dark. And you'll learn how the Alamo turned from refuge into deathtrap. See how Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and General Santa Anna all used technology of the day as we "Remember the Alamo!" Hosted by Keith Carradine.
