"Alamo Guards"

The January 2014 drill is at Enchanted Springs Ranch.

____________________________________________

 . Co. "K", 6th Texas Infantry Regiment "Alamo Guards" is a group of dedicated men and women who reenact the period of the American War Between the States (often called the Civil War) in order that our generation may better understand this important and pivotal part of our country's history.


Below:  Company K at
the Arkansas Post reenactment.  While it was definitely not a big event, Arkansas Post is a very significant place in the history of the original 6th Texas infantry regiment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Company K at the Boerne Burgesfest parade.  We will be back there in 2014.

While our primary impression is Confederate,  we DO galvanize (portray) as Federal Infantry when needed.  (Our secondary impression is 165th New York Volunteer Infantry – Zouaves!). 

As here, on Sunday of the Shiloh 2012 reenactment when we marched in as part of Buell’s army and counter-attacked.

We belong to the 1st Confederate Division and it is the policy of the Division to galvanize where needed.

We also fall in with our pards in the 9th Texas Infantry and comprise the Red River Battalion.

About half of our members are from the San Antonio (Bexar County) area, and we have many who live north to Austin, south to Laredo and to Corpus Christi, and from Houston.

 Authenticity is our greatest goal but safety is our #1 goal. All new recruits will be taught and certified in safety and drill first before being allowed to shoot or carry any weapon on the field. We owe this to you and the pards on the field. This is NOT negotiable.
