His­tor­i­cal panel de­lays vote on mov­ing Alamo Ceno­taph

Antelope Valley Press - - SECOND FRONT -

AUSTIN, Texas — A state his­tor­i­cal re­view panel de­layed a vote Tues­day on whether to move the Alamo Ceno­taph, a me­mo­rial to the 200 Alamo de­fend­ers killed by the Mex­i­can army in an 1836 as­sault dur­ing the war for Texas in­de­pen­dence.

The Texas His­tor­i­cal Com­mis­sion put off its vote for at least two months, say­ing com­mis­sion­ers want more in­for­ma­tion on where the mon­u­ment might be moved and what restora­tion work it may need. It’s a key piece in a ma­jor ren­o­va­tion of the Alamo.
