Rough Road to Texas Independence Walking Tour
April 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm - Free, donations welcome
Learn all about the Texas 1835-1836 fight for independence from Mexico in less than an hour! Actors will portray stories of Oakwood Cemetery heroic “residents” who fought in the battles of the Revolution, survived the Alamo, escaped the Goliad massacre, and helped form the Texas Republic. 45 minute walking tours start every ~30 minutes 10am-2pm and are presented by Save Austin’s Cemeteries non-profit. We’ll also have a display of the flags of the battles and the Texas Republic plus paintings of the key events.
Kids under adult supervision are welcome, but please leave your pets at home and wear closed-toed shoes. Free, but donations gladly accepted to help fund preservation projects.
