The Cenotaph will stay put at its present location in front of the Alamo. The Texas Historical Commission voted to deny the City of San Antonio a permit to move the monument out of the Alamo courtyard to a new location several hundred feet to the south. The proposed move was part of the 400-million-dollar Alamo Master Plan, which calls for repairs to the Alamo and the Long Barracks, and the addition a visitor center and museum. Moving the 1936 Cenotaph proved to be an unpopular proposal.
