Texas: Phil Collins donates revolution artifacts to Alamo

Remembering the Alamo

Remember the Alamo? Phil Collins sure does. The British 1970s and ’80s music icon was in San Antonio last month to announce the donation of his vast collection of artifacts related to the 1836 Battle of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. The 63-year-old Genesis singer-drummer became an Alamo aficionado as a lad in England while watching a 1950s Disney miniseries on Davy Crockett. Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson says some artifacts could go on display at the Alamo within a year.
