About the Lecture:
Alamo Weaponry: On the Verge of Change

In the decades leading up to the Texas Revolution, little had changed regarding firearm technology. Since the early 17th century, the standard military firearm used around the world was the flintlock musket. This was still true in Texas in 1835-36. Although Samuel Colt patented the first percussion pistol on February 25, 1836 (during the siege of the Alamo), the men of the Alamo most certainly carried on with their trusty flintlocks.

About the Speaker:
John Welch & Jerry McMahon

John Welch and Jerry McMahon, experienced and educated historical reenactors and living historians, will demonstrate and explain the weapon technology that was used throughout the Texas Revolution by both the Texan rebels and the Mexican Army. This event will feature shooting demonstrations and displays of period firearms.
