Of the estimated 189 men who died in the Alamo, only six were actually born in Texas: Juan Abamillo, Juan A. Badillo, Carlos Espalier, Gregorio Esparza, Antonio Fuentes, and Andrés Nava.
Juan Abamillo was a native Tejano who had volunteered to serve in the Texas Revolution under the command of Juan N. Seguín. He had arrived at the Alamo on February 23, 1836 and he died there on March 6, 1836 as he fought alongside Travis, Crocket and the others.
Juan Antonio Badillo was born in Texas and also served under Captain Juan N. Seguín. Badillo accompanied Seguín to the Alamo in February. But when Seguín was called out to rally reinforcements, Badillo stayed at the Alamo.
Like his fellow revolutionary, Juan Abamillo, Juan Antonio Badillo died on March 6, defending the Alamo against Mexican Federal troops.

Thank you

TID2015-60Thank you again for putting on the Texas Independence Day Celebration and the Student History Competition. I really liked working on my art project and studying about the history of Texas. I was born in Fort Worth but my parents are from California and Canada. Texas is so different from both Canada and California, but I love living here. I appreciate winning prize money for my project and have put it away towards my college fund. I am looking forward to being a part of the history competition again this year. I hope my friends enter some of their projects too.
Thank you, Keri Kittleson
