A short drive from Houston, the George Ranch Historical Park offers away to go back in time and understand life in a by-gone era. At certain times, events are held to re-enact periods of history. It is truly one of the best living history museums around.  I visited the ranch during the runaway scrape, which is a re-enacted battle between Texan and Mexican troops as Santa Anna was marching towards San Jacinto.

Here are some photos I took on my visit. I hope they inspire you to visit and take your own photos, and learn more about Texas history.
