March 1 in San Antonio history...

1910
The first message from the balloon "New York" to the the San Antonio Light and Gazette was thrown out as the monster conqueror of the air passed over Alamo Heights at 9:28 p.m. yesterday.

1930
Harry M. Wurzbach, "the fighting Congressman," will be a candidate to succeed himself as respresentative from the 14th Congressional District of Texas.

1970
Looking every inch the dashing 1910 pilot from his goggles down to the shining knee-high boots, James Appleby fitted himself loosely into the cockpit of the fragile Wright bi-plane and prepared for its journey from Kelly Air Force Base to Fort Sam Houston in preparation for the air celebrations.
