From the Aguayo Expedition reaching San Antonio to the "Great Tamale Incident," to a pair of deadly tragedies at Fiesta, San Antonio’s history is as varied and colorful as the people who inhabit the Alamo City.

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.

TPR's San Antonio Tricentennial Minute is made possible by:

But there's a problem: They can’t figure out who owns it.
