The Road to San Jacinto:
The Battle of San Jacinto didn’t happen in a vacuum. It was the final chapter to six months of fighting and debate about the future of Texas. Representatives from the other major Texas Revolution sites will be on hand to share their parts in the story that ended with the Battle of San Jacinto.
Step back in time to revolutionary Texas! Hands-on, participatory activities will let you interact with reenactors as they cook food, check weapons, and engage in the daily routines of soldiers and civilians from almost 200 years ago. All activities are family friendly and include fun activities just for kids. Drop in all day long.
Food trucks and a variety of vendors will be available for on-site purchases.
