This month's Helotes & Leon Springs Highlights monthly news magazine features my historical column, "Did You Know" about A. J. Leslie, for whom the street Leslie Rd in Helotes is named. Leslie (1815-1885) was a renowned Indian fighter and was among 62 Texans captured by Mexican troops on September 11, 1842, and marched from San Antonio to the prison at Castle of Perote near the town of Vera Cruz, Mexico. Read about him in this link. (Article on page 8).
