Alamo Caretakers Seek to Expel Rebels

The Daughters of the Republic of Texas want two members who spoke out about the group's Alamo management and fundraising expelled.

Erin Bowman and Dianne MacDiarmid formed a new group to fundraise for the famous Texas battle site. They want the 18th century mission in San Antonio to run more like a modern museum with national accreditation and a business plan.

But the DRT leadership says the group has been running the Alamo just fine for more than a century and doesn't see the need for major changes.

Bowman and MacDiarmid have been sent expulsion letters by the DRT.

They plan to fight it.
