This educational film, likely from the 1960s, tours San Antonio’s historic past, visiting local sites related to each of the six countries that once held sovereignty over the territory: Spain (1519-1821), France (1685-1690), Mexico (1821-1836), the Republic of Texas (1836-1945), the Confederate States of America (1961-1965), and the United States of America (1845-1861, 1965-Present). Highlighted locations include the Missions San José and Concepción, the Spanish Governor’s Palace, the Guilbeau house, the Alamo, St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, Fort Sam Houston, and Brackenridge Park.
