The Battle of Béjar Reenactment Unfolds . . .
As shoppers drift between art galleries and cafés in downtown’s La Villita, men dressed in hats and coats from the 19th century will hide behind walls and pillars, staring down their rifles at others dressed as soldiers in the Mexican army. Shouts and booms from gunpowder and cannon fire will fill the air as members of the San Antonio Living History Association re-enact the Battle of Bejar, the final days of an 1835 siege by Texian rebels against Mexican forces in what was once La Villa de Bexar, an alternate spelling. The re-enactment is one of several put on each year by the association, whose members stage events around Texas commemorating the significant events of the Texas Revolution.
