On March 2nd and 3rd, I photographed the Texas heroes Foundation "March 2 Texas", Texas Independence Day Celebration. There were contests for children in essay writing, art displays, crafts and musicianship. This group encourages knowledge and history of Texas and Texas founders.  There were many colorful characters on display, including a chuck wagon, Texas Cowboys, Sam Houston, A country Preacher, Ladies in Mourning, A Confederate Soldier. There was a celebration of Elizabeth Crockett, Davy Crockett's widow at Acton Cemetery. There were several direct descendants of David and Elizabeth Crockett in attendance.

 

Groups of children form Acton middle School came on a field trip to see the reenactments and watch the ceremony at Elizabeth Crockett's grave, which featured "Sam Houston" laying 13 yellow roses on her headstone.
