Article By Ana Luisa Martinez-Catsam* few minutes past four o'clock in the morning on Monday, November 11, 1918, San Antonio residents woke to the sounds of whistles blowing throughout the city that heralded the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Despite cold weather, men, women, and children gathered on foot and in automobiles at the center of town to celebrate the news. Patriotic songs and shouts filled the air as people, proudly waving flags, lined up for impromptu parades. A reporter for the San Antonio Light described the city going "mad with joy as daylight brought thousands and constantly increasing thousands to the streets of downtown. It was Christmas, New Year's and the Fourth of July rolled into one maddened jubilation."1 For a moment the city forgot desolate streets, closed church and school doors, and the dreaded influenza epidemic that claimed the lives of friends and family members. For the first time since officials prohibited public gatherings in October, San Antonians gathered in merriment. Their joy proved premature; despite the hope that life would once again return
