of the assembled cavalry took the opportunity to drill
in the meadow adjacent Brushy Creek. This allowed
for Red Eagle and is Native American representatives
to ride with the long knives and get acquainted with
the maneuvering abilities of the army. He promised
to unite with us in the near future as the campaign
to build a legion continues.
of Historical note: We use the word "Indian"
with permission as a point of historical reference
as they are called. In point of fact, these Native
Americans are from several Nations and represent the
Nation of the Lakota, (called Sioux by the white man)
Commanche, Blackfoot and Mohawks. They are real Native
Americans and not reenactors as far as their heritage
is concern. They can and do reenact historical scenes
depicting their ancestors.
3rd Texas Cavalry will be part of an Indian war period
reenactment on May 23rd and 24th 1998 in Bryan, Texas
depicting both the capture and release of Cynthia
Ann Parker as in occurred in Texas.
