February 22 in San Antonio history…

1836
Santa Anna‘s advance troops arrive in San Antonio.

1957
Old 794 was offically handed over to the city.  The last of Southern Pacific’s steam locomotives will be a permanent display at Maverick Park. (It will remain there until 1999, when it was moved to Sunset Station. – Ed.)

1980
San Antonians watch the tape-delayed prime-time coverage of the highly-anticipated Olympic hockey match between the USSR and USA, on KSAT Channel 12.  The underdog Americans stun the highly-favored Russians, 4-3.
“Do you believe in miracles?  YES!”
