Most Texans and many Americans have heard of the Alamo and the main figures associated with the heroic battle that took place there. But how many Americans and even Texans know that it was in San Antonio that Robert E. Lee made the fateful decision that would change his life and the course of American history? Or that John F. Kennedy’s last official act as president was made at Brooks Air Force Base? And how about the fact that the majestic figures of four of our greatest presidents carved on Mount Rushmore first were models created in a little studio near Brackenridge Park? These and other fascinating but relatively unknown facets of local history are explored in It Happened in San Antonio: Lesser- Known Events in the History of the Alamo City.
