The singer has been an Alamo fan since age 5, when he saw Fess Parker as Davy Crockett on a black and white TV.
Five years ago, Collins delivered his collection of Alamo memorabilia to San Antonio. The collection is valued at $10 million.
“To me, these items aren’t just about a battle,” Collins said, “they are about the idea of these men and women having a choice and staying to fight for what they believed to be just and right. That’s what makes these things special.”
