March 6 in San Antonio history...

The final assault on the Alamo begins at approximately 5:30 a.m. Mexican forces take huge losses but capture the compound, killing the last of the 187 defenders who had held out within the walls of the fortified mission for thirteen days.

Parachutes saved the lives of Kelly flyers, Lt. C. D. McAllister and Cadet Charles A. Lindbergh, today when their planes collided in mid-air.  This is said to be the first time that two pilots have saved themselves by use of parachutes after a mid-air collision.

The new VIA Metropolitan Transit, successor to the San Antonio Transit System, officially takes over operation of local public transportation, although the transition from SATS to VIA has been going on for several months.
