Richmond Reenacts The Jaybird - Woodpecker Battle

On August 16th Richmond reenacted the Jaybird - Woodpecker Battle, which occurred exactly 125-years earlier. If you want more background on the original event, click this link to an article in the Handbook of Texas.  

If you'd like to read an excellent book on the battle and the aftermath, you can read Pauline Yelderman's definitive history, "Jaybird-Woodpecker War," which the Fort Bend County Historical Commission has recently reprinted.  Copies are available at the Fort Bend County Museum, the Rosenberg Railroad Museum, the Old Foster Community Museum, and the Sugar Land Heritage Society.
