Winter Camp, formally know as “Pilgrims Camp” is an opportunity for new comers to the reenacting hobby a chance to talk to the old timers and learn what it takes to become a historical re-enactor. Visit the camps and see the dress of 1836 Texas. Some encampments will be selling gently used clothing and period correct items while others will offer new items for purchase. Visitors are cordially invited to ask questions to the participants to learn what it takes to become a Texas history re-enactor. A $5.00 per person or family fee is required to offset the cost off liability insurance. Sorry but no food vendors will be available on site but the city of Columbus is close by with many fine eating establishments.
You may also witness live fire from the Texas Army Colonels honing their shooting skills or those shooting their requirement to obtain a commission as a Colonel in the Texas Army. All done with muzzleloading weapons of the 1836 time period.
