May 5 in San Antonio history...

Mission Concepcion is established.

A movement has begun to have painted oil pictures of all San Antonio’s Mayors to be hung in the council chamber of the City Hall, starting with the first and coming down to the present official.  It is said that likenesses can be secured of them all and the idea is generally endorsed by those who have heard of it.

President Reagan comes to San Antonio a brief two hour visit, during which he gives a 10-minute speech at La Villita, saying, “Cinco de Mayo reminds us of the love of liberty found on both sides of the border, and in this love of liberty, you, who are Americans of Mexican descent, link our two peoples.”  Afterwards, Reagan attends a private reception with the City Council and invited guests.
