Alamo artifacts and a pop star
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS- A vast collection of Alamo artifacts is being returned to the shrine in Texas courtesy of British pop star Phil Collins who donated his vast collection.
Collins' collection was considered the world's largest private collection and included a fringed leather pouch and a gun used by Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie's legendary knife. The collection was given to Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson who is the state steward of the Alamo. He wants a new historical center to showcase the Collins collection.
Collins joked he spent all the money he'd made from music on artifacts related to the classic battle in 1836 where Mexican troops killed 200 Texans defending the church.
