My Experience at Battle for Texas

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Battle For Texas and The Social Being. Don’t worry though, all opinions of their fabulousness are my own!

Last week I had the honor of being invited to check out Battle for Texas – The Experience.  Here’s a glimpse of what I saw and what you’re likely to experience on your visit.

During our visit, I was happily surprised to be greeted by tour guides, dressed in period garbs.

They took us through the entire exhibit, sharing their vast knowledge of Texas history and the over 250 never-before-seen artifacts housed here. They not only took us through the tensions that lead to the Texas Revolution, but they shared great insight into those who laid their lives to defend the Alamo, as well as into the daily lives of early Texas settlers.

One of the things that I truly appreciated about this experience however, was that the information is shared in both English and Spanish via signs like this one. As a first generation Mexican-American,  I was thrilled to see this because I love bringing my Spanish speaking parents to cool things like this.  The availability of bilingual signage allows them to learn along for themselves, vs. having to wait for me to explain each section or piece as we go along.

Another fun surprise was when our tour guides graced us with a re-enactment of what it must have felt like, trying to move around, during the Battle of the Alamo.  It was a short little adventure, but added a nice touch to our experience.

Here’s our tour guide waving her weapon and asking for assistance for our safe passage during the re-enactment.

There are also multimedia re-enactments to help you truly grasp what life was like back then. You can also download their Experience Battle For Texas app to gain access to audio clips for the various artifacts on display.  The app also allows you to watch 1836 re-enactors telling their story from the historical figure’s perspective.  You can see it from Davy Crockett’s, Susanna Dickinson’s, and even General Santa Anna’s view. It also allows you go on a unique scavenger hunt for more information on each historical figure.  It’s no wonder Battle for Texas has become a destination for schools, the Boys & Girls Scouts, and even for private parties.
