The Texas General Land Office manages the downtown San Antonio shrine to Texas independence, and Collins is said to have the world's largest private collection of Texas Revolution artifacts, Patterson said.
The General Land Office is developing plans for an Alamo visitors' center to provide more space to exhibit artifacts about the fort and the 1836 battle that made it famous.
Collins has said he owns "hundreds" of cannonballs, documents and other artifacts from the Alamo, with his most prized item being a receipt signed by Alamo commander William Barret Travis for 32 head of cattle used to feed the Alamo defenders.

Yep, that Phil Collins. Pretty neat, if you ask me.
This Phil Collins obsession with that Alamo is so cool and amazing.
Here is a song by Donovan about the Alamo, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBup2JAY0EM&feature=kp
You got any ritalin? I was going to listen to Phil Collins later.
One of my dark secrets. I am and have always been a fan of Donovan. Don’t tell anyone.
Well that’s pretty neat. Thank you, Mr. Collins.
No shame. Nothing better than a sunset listening to Hurdy Gurdy Man.
hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, ?
I once played “Atlantis” for my wife. She thought he sounded high as a kite throughout the song.
That’s a fair amount of stuff. Good for Phil. Add my thanks.
“Remember The Alamo!”
