Alamo Mission San Antonio
Author: A. Michael Uhlmann
In 1692, Spanish missionaries came across a small Payaya Indian community along what was then known as the Yanaguana River on the feast day of Saint Anthony, 13 June. The Franciscan chaplain, Father Damien Massanet, with agreement from General Domingo de Teran, renamed the rivers in his honour and eventually built a mission nearby, as well. This mission became the focal point of a small community that grew in size and scope to become the seventh-largest city in the country, the U.S. city of San Antonio, Texas.
