September 12th, 9:00 AM - September 12th, 5:00 PM

Follow the Facebook Event or check Presidio la Bahia Website for more info.
Visit with historical interpreters as they bring to life the Kentucky Mustangs, one of the many units to serve under Fannin’s command of Ft. Defiance. Learn about this rowdy group of young men who sailed and marched from Kentucky to Texas to take part in the Texian War for Independence. Hear tales of their colorful antics and behavior while stationed in La Bahia and discover why the locals came to despise their presence here. As an added bonus, we will have a brief workshop for those interested in joining a recreation of the Kentucky Mustangs beginning at 3:30PM and running until approximately 5:00PM. If you’d like to learn more about the men who fought for Texas’ independence or maybe you’d like to get into the hobby of reenacting, this is the program for you!
Dress for the weather as this event takes place out of doors. Admission is $5 for adults, $4.50 for seniors, $2 for children 6-11, under 6 are free.
