The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute — OLLI at Casper College is offering a live drama event with “Susanna Dickinson: Remembering the Alamo” Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m.

The live drama will focus on Dickinson recounting “ … the events leading up to the war for Texas independence, her experiences during the battle for the Alamo, and her life as an Alamo defender’s widow in the new Republic of Texas,” according to India Hayford, reenactment presenter.

According to Hayford, the siege of the Alamo began on the morning of March 6, 1836, when Mexico’s General Santa Anna led several thousand soldiers on an attack against the Alamo and the 180 Texans inside. The siege lasted for 13 days.
