News & Announcements

March 5 in San Antonio history...

1836
Santa Anna issues orders for the assault to begin on the following day utilizing four assault columns and one reserve column. A messenger arrives at the Alamo compound with the grim news that reinforcements aren’t coming. Travis gathers his men and informs them of their options. Popular legend has it that this was the moment when Col. William Barret Travis, Commander of the Alamo forces, drew a line in the dirt with his saber and asked those men who were committed to defending the Alamo to the death to cross.

1918 – World War I
The Texas Landmarks Society is honoring the Alamo heroes this morning at 10 a.m.  The spots where the funeral pyres of the heroes burned have been marked with tablets and the ceremonies will be held there, in unveiling the tablets.  One tablet is at the building of the M. Halff Bros. at Rusk and East Commerce Street and the second at the old Ludlow place across the street.

1966
At 8:05 a.m., firefighters finally extinguish the massive five-alarm blaze that consumed Produce Row. The blaze began at 11:30 p.m and raged for over eight hours.  At the same time, a four-alarm fire burned the Stemens Card Company on Fredericksburg Road.  These two fires required the service of every firefighter in the city.  “I’ve never seen as much fire in one night,” said Chief M. L. Rogers.
