September 14 in San Antonio history...

1851
The Catholic Ursuline Order of nuns opens the first school for girls in San Antonio.

1884
The first bell to peal a call to Protestant worship in San Antonio at Rev. Wesley DeVilbiss’ Paine Methodist Church (now Travis Park United Methodist) was given to the Church of Strangers on Tenth St.

1985
A Southern Pacific train derails on a trestle near Macdona and dumps 42,000 gallons of highly toxic sulfuric acid into the Medina River.  The acid wipes out much of the river's fish.   Within a day of the spill, railway officials add lime to the river in a move to neutralize the acid but add too much and compound the problem.  State game and fish officials estimate the monetary loss of the fish alone at $119,808.40.
