Behind the most famous battle cry in American history is a story of ambition and heroism, greed and vanity, desperation and defeat.

The Real West: The Battle of the Alamo - Host Kenny Rogers focuses on the strained collaboration among Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William Barret Travis.

The Real West: The Texas Rangers - Ride into the past to see how these legendary lawmen patrolled a vast and wild territory.

Biography: Davy Crockett: American Frontier Legend - Experts explode the myths surrounding the backwoodsman who died at the Alamo.
