News & Announcements

March 19 in San Antonio history...

1840
The Council House Fight takes place in the building across 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.

1910
Edward Rand purchases the de la Garza homestead for $200,000 for the future home of Rand Building (Wolff & Marx.)

1952
The National Broadcasting Company announced today that orders have been placed with the Telephone Company for the completion of a microwave relay circuit to bring live television network shows direct to San Antonio on or around July 1st. That means that WOAI television viewers will be able to see and hear the Republican and Democratic National Conventions right from Chicago this July.
