Between the time of the Spanish Empire and the end of the Mexican War, what we consider the Old West was the Mexican Southwest (1811-1847). Here you can find sites for reenactors of Mexican California, the Texan War for Independence, and the Mexican War. Bienvienidos!
Reenactor sites from 1811 to 1847 (including individual reenactor sites who lived on into later periods) in the Mexican Southwest, Texas and the Mexican War.
Spanish Colonial and Mexican Era historical interpretation is very one-sided without the inclusion of music and dancing. Without the fandangos, fiestas and canciones, interpretation of these eras lacks the breath that the true history had. At any good Spanish Colonial or Mexican-era reenactment or living history event, there is always music in the air and dancing going on.
