The Battle of the Alamo took place between February 23 and March 6, 1836. The battle consisted of a thirteen day siege proceeding an all out attack from the Alamo Mission near what is now San Antonio, Texas.

His acceptance of the society’s idea of Jim being a slave is shown when Huck addresses Jim as “Miss Watson’s nigger” (Twain, 17). By addressing Jim as such Huck is excepting society’s position on slavery without really having any experience with it himself. Huck’s acceptance is also shown when Jim brings up the idea of stealing his wife and children back, in which he responds “It most froze me to hear such talk” (Twain, 88). This shows his acceptance because he doesn’t see Jim as a person and he sees his children as someone else’s property, which he feels would be wrong to steal.

There are numerous reliefs of both Mayan gods including Chac and the Toltec gods including Quetzacoatl. For some reason the city was abandoned around 1300.
