In the early years the Spanish settlement of the city started with San Antonio de Valero Mission (now called the Alamo) as a way to reestablish Spanish dominance over Texas from the French. It soon became the largest settlement in Texas. When Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna withdrew the Mexican constitution violence began and the Texian Army forced Mexican soldiers out. The battle of the Alamo in 1836 led to a defeat of the Texian Army. The men who served were seen as martyrs for the name of freedom and that's where the phrase of "Remember the Alamo" was found. In 1845 the state was annexed and so started the Mexican-American war. Although the United States won, the city was changed and was left with a population of 800 people. By the 1860's the Civil War began and the population grew once again. San Antonio grew as a center for cattle and as a beautiful exotic city with all of it's diverse culture. In the beginning of the 20th century the downtown area expanded to maintain the traffic, unfortunately having to remove several of the historical buildings in the interim. Like several areas in the southwest, San Antonio grew steadily and now has a over 1.2 million in population.
