Get to know San Antonio, TX

The city of San Antonio is the second most populated city in Texas.  The area was named by a Spanish expedition in 1691 after St. Anthony of Padua.  A settlement began in 1709 when Fr. Antonio de Olivares visited the site and desired to build a mission and settlement there.  With many delays impacting the construction of the mission, it was not until 1718 that the community began.  It started with the construction of the Mision de San Antonio de Valero, which would later be called the Alamo, and the Presidio San Antonio de Bexar.  San Antonio continued to expand and became the largest Spanish settlement in Texas.  The violence brought on by Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna’s rule impacted the San Antonio settlement which had become home to many Americans.  The famous Battle of the Alamo occurred at the deserted mission from February 23- March 6, 1836, in which the largely outnumbered Texas forces commanded by William Barrett Travis and James Bowie were ultimately defeated and martyred by Santa Anna’s army.  The Alamo became a battle cry for the Texas Army who went on to defeat Santa Anna.  The Mexican American War devastated San Antonio, reducing its population by two-thirds.  It was not until the start of the Civil War in 1860 that the city began to recover as migrants and immigrants poured in.  It became one of the major cattle cities following the Civil War.  The arrival of the railroad in 1877 helped connect it to major cities. Its location as a frontier town continued to bring a mixture of cultures to the city throughout the 1800s.  Popular attractions in San Antonio include the Alamo, the River Walk, and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.  The city is the home of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs and hosts the annual Alamo Bowl and U.S. Army All-American Bowl for college and high school football respectively.  The main industries in San Antonio include military, health care, government, financial services, energy, and tourism, creating a diverse economy.  The city is the home of six Fortune 500 Companies as well as many headquarters, including H-E-B and Whataburger.  It is also the home of Lackland Air Force Base and Fort Sam Houston.
