DON'T MISS CAMPO DE CAHUENGA'S BIG RE-ENACTMENT THIS SUNDAY

The 2008 Re-enactment Event is scheduled for Sunday, January 13, in the courtyard of the Campo de Cahuenga.
1-2:30 p.m.

Authentic Uniform Re-enactment * Howitzer Cannon Fire * Fiesta Dancing * Memorial Wreath Dedication * Native Daughters' Famous $2 Taco Bar

Time-travel back to 1847 for this momentous Living History event. Witness the proceedings "in the moment" in the surroundings of the very place where General Andres Pico and Lt. Colonel John C. Fremont placed their signatures on the document ending hostilities and bringing peace with honor between the American forces and Californios under Mexican Rule. Imagine the future, as Manifest Destiny was realized, California quickly gained statehood and all local peoples united as fellow Americans because of this momentous signing. On this spot, Butterfield Stage Coaches would soon stop, Civil War soldiers would later encamp and subsequent generations would have a front row seat for a burgeoning entertainment industry.
