The Mexican War
« on: March 28, 2007, 05:51:14 PM »
Hey all, anyone doing Mexican-American war? (I live in Ca so it's a bit easier for me.)
I do it but have yet to join a unit.

Cool, always good to see more people, when does the Tejon thing happen? I've driven by there a couple times, but never knew there was events there.

It happens every either first or second Sunday of the month. I forgot whether it's first or second. their website is www.forttejon.org. They do mainly late 1850's dragoon events.

This is an old thread but I figured it is worth reviving it in order to introduce myself.  Hopefully the interest will increase such that the Mexican War will get its own sub-forum someday.

I live in New Mexico - I'm learning about the Mexican War period and am particularly interested in the Mormon Battalion and the Army of the West.  Since the MB did not see combat (and generally did not have uniforms), I am developing a uniformed infantry impression of the period.

I know some of us here over in South Carolina are trying to put together an impression for the "Palmetto Regiment, S.C. Volunteers," however it's slow going. I know we are working on trying to put together a Memorial Service in August 2009 to try and spark some more interest as well as furthering the communities knowledge of the War with Mexico and the States involvement.

Hi, I am from CA and I fall in with the 1ST New York Legion boys from Northern Cal.  This group does no reenactments just living history and parades.  I think there is another group in Monterey.  If you have any questions please let me know.
