Bread Making DETAILS

From the organizer:

Before an army could fight, it had to be fed! Soldiers in the Texas Army were usually supplied with the basic ingredients and had to make their own food out of what was provided. In his memoirs of the Texas Revolution, Dr. Labadie wrote that the day before the Battle of San Jacinto, he “secured a small tin pan full, and having made it into dough, I threw it on the hot embers, and in ten minutes it was bread.” Try making your own campfire bread, just like the Texian soldiers did 187 years ago.


SAN JACINTO DAY takes place on the first Saturday of each month. On that day, children can enter for free when accompanied by an adult family member who purchases a ticket. In addition, there will be a hands-on, interactive program designed to be enjoyed as a family scheduled for part of the day. Child entry is FREE all day with the purchase of an adult ticket, so bring the kids or grandkids and experience Texas history as a family!  While groups are welcome to participate in the Family Day activity, free child admission only applies to families.
