Santa Anna’s army of approximately 2,600 had 600 killed and wounded, although those totals range lower in Santa Anna’s official report and higher in some Texan accounts. All the Texan combatants died. Their estimated numbers on the final day varied in conflicting reports from 189 to 257. Of those Texans who perished, at least nine (9) were of Hispanic ancestry. Approximately thirty (30) women, children, and slaves survived the siege and fall of the Alamo.
