Costumed actors regale audiences with accounts of life in the 1800’s, trained reenactors fire 19th-century cannons and rifles, the award-winning Sahawe Indian Dancers dazzle with their energetic moves, and much more. All of this takes place through three days in May on the grounds of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. Come for one day or all three and experience the colorful world of the Texas frontier.
