News & Announcements

April 29 in San Antonio history...

1917 – World War I
Departing from a traditional policy formed at its inception, the Republic will raise its army of 2,000,000 men by selective conscription. The draft army bill passed both House and Senate shortly before midnight; the House by 397 to 24, and the Senate by 81 to 8.

1963State-2
Demolition is begun on the State Theater on the northwest corner of Flores and Houston streets (right). This theater was originally named the Majestic and opened in 1913.   Acts such as  Mae West, The Marx Brothers and Houdini all appeared there. The name was changed to the State when the current Majestic Theater was constructed in 1929.

1976
The Daughters of the Republic of Texas announce that a 49-year old plaque honoring Clara Driscoll was stolen “about a month ago” off the face of the Alamo where it had been relocated earlier this year.  Thieves were able to pry the plaque loose despite it having been anchored with bolts six inches deep in the stone wall.  The DRT notified police about the missing plaque but there had been no publicity, except a tiny classified newspaper ad saying: “Lost. Clara Driscoll plaque from the Alamo. Finder return. No questions asked.”
