Jorge Garcia, The Foundation of San Antonio

Event will be held outside.

On the 5th of May, the governor, in the name of his Majesty, took possession of the place called San Antonio, establishing himself in it, and fixing the royal standard with the requisite solemnity, the father chaplain having previously celebrated mass, and it was given the name of Villa de Bejar. This site is henceforth destined for the civil settlement and the soldiers who are to guard it.
