Thursday marks 181 years since Santa Anna and approximately 1,500 Mexican soldiers arrived in San Antonio for the siege on the Alamo. And, because a lot has happened in 181 years, the official Twitter account of the storied mission has been tweeting updates as if it was happening in real time, “using the words of those who were there.”

They started bright and early on this day in 1836.

Let’s not spoil all the fun, though. Head over to the official Alamo account on Twitter and recap the day’s events. Spoilers: Cannons are involved.
