May 17 – 19, 2019 – Raymond, MS – “They Didn’t Scare Worth a Cent!”

The idea for this effort is to recreate the 7th Texas Infantry as they appeared during the Vicksburg Campaign and at the Battle of Raymond. This effort will be on the original ground on the original dates. Saturday (5/18) will be used to recreate Gregg’s advance on to the battlefield at Raymond and consisted of drill and basic daily life of a Confederate regiment on campaign. For Sunday (5/19), we will recreate the attack made by Granburys’ Texans against McPherson’s Federal troops in real time. This will be done across the original ground and Fourteen Mile Creek. We are still diligently researching every aspect that we can of the 7th. https://www.facebook.com/groups/508224916239837/\
