United States Ghosts, The Alamo

Updated on July 5, 2009

Haunted Alamo

The Alamo is a former Spanish Mission in San Antonio Texas. From February 23 to March 6th 1836 the Battle of the Alamo was fought. It is the most famous battle of the Texas Revolution. There were 257 Texans killed in the battle of the Alamo and a estimated 600 Mexican soldiers were killed. And as we all know anywhere you have that much death and tragedy you usually have paranormal activity. And many people over the years have made the claim that the Alamo is haunted.

The Battle Of The Alamo

Ghosts Of The Alamo

After the Mexican's killed all the defenders in the Alamo Santa Anna gave the order that the Alamo was to be torn down and destroyed. Mexican soldiers that were tearing it down said that ghosts of the Texan defenders tore their tools from their hands amd threw them out of the Alamo. The Mexican soldiers ran from the Alamo and a couple days later a second group of soldiers was sent to destroy the Alamo but they also were chased away by what they claimed were ghosts and that is the reason the Alamo is still standing today.

Ghost Stories of The Alamo

People today claim to see soldiers who are dressed like the Alamo defenders would have been inside the Alamo. Bugles are also heard and some people have claimed to hear the sounds of battle and smell gun powder burning. A young woman's ghost dressed in a beautiful white and red dress is often seen in the area of the front of the Alamo. She walks along and some people wonder who she is but she is gone as quick as she appears.

A woman singing is also often heard. Her singing appears to be everywhere around you. And people have searched often for the source of the sound of the singing but they can't ever find the woman doing the singing.

People also claim to see soldiers in Mexican uniforms outside the Alamo and people have even asked if there is a reenactment going on but of course there isn't. Some people have even claimed to see the ghost of a Mexican officier on horseback. The Mexican officier on horseback appears to rush at the Alamo building and then just vanish.

Colonel William Travis is often seen in various parts of the Alamo. He appears just walking along or standing looking out of a window or doorway of the Alamo.
