Native Americans first lived along the San Antonio river, calling the area "Yanaguana", which means "refreshing waters" or "clear waters". A band of Spanish explorers and missionaries came upon the river in 1961, and because it was the feast of St. Anthony, they named the river "San Antonio". Rhe actual founding of the city came in 1718 by father Antonio Olivares when he established mission Aan Antonio de Valero now known as "the alamo" where 189 defenders held the old mission against some 4,000 mexican troops for 13 days.

San Antonio has a strong military and medical center presence as it is home to Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base and Brooks City Base, with Camp Bullis and Camp Stanley just outside the city.
