So we’ve been covering The Alamo and the War with Mexico in class the past few days. You know, Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie, Sam Houston, William Travis, General Santa Anna and all those cool guys. We hit it pretty hard and really covered it.

Or so I thought.

To finish up the lesson I showed the kids “The Alamo”, the great 2004 movie starring Billy Bob Thornton, Jason Patric and Dennis Quaid. As I was typing in “The Alamo 2004” on YouTube to find the movie one of my students said this:

“2004? Wow. It happened that recently?”

Sigh. Oh well, he was only 177-years off.
