The eight Mississippians who died at the siege of the Alamo 176 years ago are being honored by the State of Texas and Mississippi this week.
On Friday, they will be remembered in a ceremony at the site of the battle in San Antonio, Texas.
Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel will lead a delegation which will place a small monument commemorating their service and sacrifice. They will also replace a Mississippi state flag which has flown there for several years.
On March 6, 1836, the Mississippians, along with about 200 other defenders, were killed when the Alamo fell to Mexican army forces led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
"The Alamo was a very important part of American history, it's a very important part of Texas history, but likewise, because we had eight Mississippians who fought and died there, including the youngest Alamo defender, it's a very important part of Mississippi's history as well," said McDaniel.
Last March, the State Senate passed a concurrent resolution commending and supporting the presentation of the monument, which was paid for with private funds.
