Shared history of SC and Texas to be celebrated on day Gamecocks and Texas A&M clash on the gridiron
Re-enactors, presentations, a re-created gunfight and more are on tap
Can’t make it to College Station for the showdown between the Gamecocks and Texas A&M on Saturday, Nov. 16? Then come on out to the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room for “Palmetto and Lone Star” day, a celebration of historical and cultural connections between the great states of South Carolina and Texas. It will be a full day, but we’ll have you out in time to watch the football game. Meet historical re-enactors from the 1830’s “Texian” era, though the 1916 deployment of South Carolina soldiers near El Paso during the “Blackjack” Pershing’s Punitive Expedition against Pancho Villa. Hear a first-person presentation on the life of famous Wild West Marshall “Heck” Thomas, and witness a recreated gunfight at High Noon!
