1.05 - The Apaches

After thirty years of constant harrasment by the Apaches, San Antonians do what few other frontier peoples ever could: beat them and force them to seek peace.

1.04 - Building San Antonio

Between 1718 and 1768, Spanish friars and Native American converts move nearly 1 million metric tons of limestone around the San Antonio River valley and erect the UNESCO World Heritage San Antonio Missions.

1.02 - Missionary San Antonio

Between 1718 and 1731, San Antonio grows to almost 300 "vecinos," thanks to the establishment of four new missions and the "entrepreneurialism" of some of the soldiers stationed there, who defied Spanish import restrictions to blaze the first trade routes between Spanish Texas and Eastern North America.
