For some historical subjects, there is an interesting history of the history. The Alamo forms one such subject, and that history of the history is not overlooked here. For example, there is a segment on the phenomenal Davy Crockett craze of the 1950s. There is some discussion of the many movies, which form a large subject in itself.
