(During the months of February, March and April, reenactor groups are busy in Texas, at the sites of key events in the War for Independence, doing encampments and recreations of events: The siege of the Alamo, the Coleto Creek fight/Goliad Massacre, and the Battle of San Jacinto. Below the jump are pictures that I took a couple of years ago at the first event Next week – the Goliad reenactment)
(Next Friday – Pictures from the Goliad reenactor encampment. The enactment on Alamo plaza is this weekend. More information here at the San Antonio Living History Association website. Events and certain personalities from this time were included in my book, Daughter of Texas, which David Foster reviewed here about the time of launch.)
