News & Announcements

March 19 in San Antonio history...

1840
The Council House Fight takes place in the building next to San Fernando Cathedral. The meeting took place under a truce with the purpose of negotiating peace after two years of war between the Comanche Indians and the Republic of Texas. The Comanches sought to obtain recognition of the boundaries of the Comancheria, their homeland. The Texans wanted the release of Texan and Mexican captives held by the Comanches. The event ended with 12 Comanche leaders shot to death in the Council House, 23 shot in the streets of San Antonio, and 30 taken captive. The incident ended the chance for peace and led to years of hostility and war.

1899
“Rube” Shields and George Phillips, the trick bicyclists, satisfied the curious in San Pedro Springs this afternoon for about an hour and a half with their marvelous feats. “Rube” made a specialty of riding characteristic of his role and his many comical falls from and positions on the wheel were the source of much amusement. His partner, Mr. Phillips, did some good trick riding, which was heartily applauded by the immense crowd of visitors attracted by the announcement that this team would give an exhibition.

1918
City and county officers began to enforce, this morning, the new law that makes bootlegging a felony punishable by a term of two to ten years in the penitentiary.  The law was passed at the extra session of the Legislature and carries an emergency clause which put it into effect immediately.
