The battle had a profound impact in UNSC military culture. Nearly 700 years later, Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb compared his situation in the UNSC Gettysburg-Ascendant Justice to the battle.[1]

TriviaEdit

  • Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb possessed a Texan accent.
  • The Battle of the Alamo can be seen as a similar feat to the war between the humans and the Covenant for both portray a small defending force consistently holding off a larger, more powerful enemy. In the end, the Battle of the Alamo was lost, but provided the American side with time to reorganize and ultimately win the war. Although not directly reflected in the Human-Covenant war, it portrays certain similarities.
