Moving Texas history

The Val Verde Battery cannon was moved last week from its courthouse square home to the 150th Anniversary Reenactment of the Battle of Mansfield April 26-27. Helping with the move were, from left, Billy Ford of Corsicana, Sergio Rodriguez of Fairfield, Tom James of Fairfield, and Kelvin Nicholson of Palestine. Ford, James and Nicholson are members of the Val Verde Battery reenactors. See history page 5 for more on the Val Verde Battery and its famous cannon.
