Renovation of the Alamo has been in the works for years, but now it may be running into the anti-Confederate monument/statue/flag movement. I sincerely hope not. As is noted in the FWBP article below, the battle for the Alamo occurred almost a quarter century before the Civil War. The only tie-in for those wanting to remove the flags, statutes and monuments from public places is that many who fought and died in the Alamo were slaveholders. That makes sense, because most of the Texas heroes heralded from Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, and some other southern states. But the battle was fought mainly because of the tyranny of rule by Mexico during the 1820s and 1830s.
