Ihe mission was founded for the purpose of Christionizing and educating the Indians The four acre mission establishment included stone living and leaching quarters for the converted Indians, and a two story building for the monks The various buildings were situated around a verdant, irrigated plaza and enclosed by the thick quadrangle well. The missions activities eventually ceased and il was abandoned in 1793 and the Mission archives were removed to San Fernando Parish Church in San Antonio Il was before Mexico ' s revolution from Spanish rule that a company of Spanish solders from Alamo del Parras in Mexico, used Ihe mission buildings as barracks Thus was probably derived the name " ALAMO " . The Alamo defenders held the garrison through 13 days of siege Subsequently, the Alamo was used as a commissary by the United States Government, and as a Confederate quartermaster depot during the Civil War Care of the sacred shrine finally was given by the Stale of Texas to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, who are the present custodians THE USS ALAMO Built by Ingalls Shipbuilding Corporation at Pascagoula.
