San Antonio City Officials Propose Moving the Alamo Cenotaph Again


Another battle may be brewing in San Antonio over whether to move the Alamo Cenotaph.

Despite a public backlash and permit denial, San Antonio city officials are once again pushing to move the Alamo Cenotaph. On November 12th, the Assistant City Manager presented a similar plan to one voted down by the Texas Historical Commission in September. Former General Land Office Commissioner Jerry Patterson says the debate is about more than where to put a monument.

“The San Antonio City Councilmember in charge of the Alamo, Roberto Treviño, has described the Alamo story as a myth, bunk, and said we need to focus on healing and unity,” Patterson said. “That’s one of things that concerns us all. It’s the direction of the story.”

Patterson believes there will be a long planned Alamo renovation, but he doesn't think the Cenotaph, also known as The Spirit of Sacrifice, is going to be moved.
