2018 George Ranch Runaway Scrape Reenactment
Join us for the George Ranch Runaway Scrape Reenactment on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the George Ranch Historical Park in Richmond, Texas. This exciting annual re-creation of the Runaway Scrape and Engagement at Thompson’s Ferry where they looked to cross the Brazos River. The Runaway Scrape started after the fall of the Alamo. The Alamo and Goliad have fallen to Santa Anna and the Mexican Arnmy is attempting a crossing at Thompsons Ferry. Come smell the burning gunpowder and experience the panic in this reenactment of events that occurred before the conclusion at San Jacinto.

The Soldados were advancing upon farms to gather supplies, food and ammo to support the troops as they searched for a safe crossing over the Brazos River. Settlers were advised to evacuate Richmond in April because the Soldados were getting dangerously close. They were also told to take everything they could with them so that the Soldados wouldn’t gain supplies when they over-ran the farms.
