This undated historical image courtesy of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission shows the painting of the Alamo building when the battle ended. Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is overseeing a 7-year, $450 million revamp of the Alamo, where 189 independence fighters were killed in 1836.
