May 18 in San Antonio history...

1898
The Rough Riders were put through a combined drill here yesterday by Lt. Col. Theodore Roosevelt.  The colonel looked very soldierly and proved he is every inch what he looks by putting his men through their paces without a falter.  He is just the man to lead the regiment to victory.

1928
Regular aerial passenger service between San Antonio, Dallas and Fort Worth will be instituted by Texas Air Transport airmal operators in the next several weeks.  Cost of the flight will be $32.50.

1968
