U.S. Army Signal Corps camp at Camp Travis in San Antonio, 1917.- Traces of Texas

The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal event in the TX Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission, killing all of the defenders. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texas Army defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution. [3-23-15]

City Square, San Antonio ... on March 28, 1840, Comanches appeared at the edge of San Antonio. Chief Isimanica almost naked and painted for war, rode calmly into the square, circled it, and rode down and back up Commerce Street, shouting insults and challenging any one to a fight. At Black's Saloon, he stopped, stood in the stirrups, and shouted his defiance to those inside - but had no takers. The Comanches then went to Mission San Jose, challenged the militia - no takers. What bravado!

San Antonio Zoo...This used to be so exciting for us, even my son got to ride before they quit having the rides. When I was a kid, it cost 10 cents.
