Unless you've been to San Antonio this year, you wouldn't have heard of it. The Sad part is that it is located on a spot that is technically part of the old Alamo fortress and that it, along with Ripley's Haunted Adventure is converting ground made hallow by the blood of Texas heroes into an amusement park.
A number of people have been speculating that a Texian, or some Texians were possibly lined up against this portion of the Alamo facade and then executed. (The location is below the lower north window.) The fact that the tightly grouped 'bullet splashes' appear about chest high bears this out.

It's interesting those pock marks, could they actually bee battle damage or maybe damage caused by curious tourists. I will have to get out my .69cal musket and fire a few balls at a chunk of limestone to see if they make the same kind of marks..
