From the invasion of the Alamo City to the maiden voyage of the San Antonio-Boerne passenger train to  integration of the city's lunch counters to the “Dirty Thirties,” San Antonio’s history is as varied and colorful as the people who inhabit it.

This is Texas Public Radio’s San Antonio Tricentennial Minute, a look back at 300 years of Alamo City culture, one day at a time, written and produced by David Martin Davies and narrated by contributor Yvette Benavides.

No. 3 Michigan will take on No. 1 Villanova on Monday in the Alamodome. 


The madness of March ends here in San Antonio with the NCAA championship game at the Alamodome.
