This is fascinating stuff. I did not know the Menger had been a refuge for Confederates in Texas. I've stayed in the Menger, and when we visit down there--rarely, anymore--we like to stroll through the lobby and just sit around.
I'll look forward to the next post about the Menger's colorful past. Celia

Dac, Also, recall that Capt. Richard King died at the Menger Hotel on April 14, 1885. On the 15th of April, his funeral services were held in the parlors of the Menger. Capt. King was buried in San Antonio. Larry
