DAN ARELLANO INFORMS US OF THE
The "Battle of Medina " Archeological Survey.
On Sunday August 24, 2008 volunteers will depart at 7:30 A.M. from the Shell-McDonalds station at the N.West corner of Hi 281 South at 1604 south of San Antonio . From there we will be escorted to a ranch which could be the possible location of this historical event. The team will be led by Joe Alvarez, Rick Reyes and Dan Arellano, Author and Historian. Amateur and professional historians and archeologists are invited to participate.
It is an isolated location and volunteers are asked to bring their own lunch and water. Bring your metal detectors and shovels. This is not a finder's keeper's event; all artifacts will be cataloged and photographed.
The "Battle of Medina," was the biggest and bloodiest battle ever fought on Texas soil. Over a thousand Tejanos sacrificed their lives for freedom that to this day remain unknown and unrecognized for their ultimate sacrifice.
