About the Collection

The San Antonio Express was first published in 1865, taking its name from the Alamo Express, a Union newspaper whose press had been destroyed by secession sympathizers in 1861. H. Pollman and Augus Siemering began the paper as a weekly, changing it to a daily in 1866. The paper is still in print today as the San Antonio Express-News.
