Fort Chadbourne Event 2010

Friday, April 30, dawned with a large bank of clouds that teased us with the possibility of rain. But true to West Texas tradition, it was only teasing and the sun soon shone on school buses carring about 1300 kids who were excited to learn history. Saturday was a beautiful sunny day that brought lots of visitors to see the many living history scenarios -- Texas Camel Corps, Cavalry, Infantry, Artillery, frontier women and other civilian impressions. It was a very successful event that was fun for all.
