Reminder: Register for the Goliad Camp-Out and Battle of Coleto Creek Reenactment

Posted on Mar 16 2015 - 12:30pm

Register now for the Goliad Camp-Out and Battle of Coleto Creek Reenactment.  Goliad State Park, located on the San Antonio River, contains a refurnished restoration of the Spanish Colonial Era Mission of Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zuñiga, reconstructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. Just down the road from the main park headquarters office, visitors can also tour the ruins of the 1750s Mission Rosario State Historic Site (by appointment) and visit the museum at Zaragoza Birthplace State Historic Site, which is open on Saturdays.  During this Camp-Out we will attend the annual Battle of Coleto Creek Reenactment, which commemorates a key battle during the the Texas Revolution and the tragic massacre of prisoners.  Colonel James Fannin had commanded the La Bahia presidio until shortly before his surrender to General José Urrea at the Battle of Coleto.  A week later, on Palm Sunday, March 27, 1836, Mexican soldiers marched some 330 Texian prisoners, including Colonel Fannin, out of the presidio. Rumors raced through the Texian lines that the prisoners were about to be released. Under a shroud of fog, they were directed to leave in groups, headed in different directions. About a half mile from the fort we were ordered to halt; the guard on the right then passed to the left, and instantly fired upon the prisoners, nearly all of whom fell, and the few survivors tried to escape by flight in the prairie and concealing in the weeds.

Congratulations to all Scouts and Adult Leaders for following the "Journey to Excellence" and earning the Gold Award for 2014!  In order to qualify for this award a troop must meet various performance criteria in areas such as advancement, retention, recruitment, camping, leader training, and service.  This award could not have been earned without the Scouts diligently learning skills, providing service, applying leadership, and advancing in rank.  Specials thanks to Sarah Smith for pulling together the JTE application.
