“Sea of Mud” Archeology Exhibit
at the San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site
March 30 through September 2, 2019
Texas’ newest history museum at San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site will host the “Sea of Mud” archeology exhibit from spring through summer.
The exhibit is centered around the Mexican army’s misfortunes for the two weeks of April 21 to May 9, 1836, during the Texas Revolution, in the aptly named “Sea of Mud,” where more than 2,500 Mexican soldiers and 1,500 female camp followers foundered in the muddy fields of what is now Wharton County.
The new 10,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art museum also offers visitors a chance to see interactive displays and unique objects including a desk that once belonged to Stephen F. Austin, an 1830s cast iron printing press, and many artifacts recovered during archeological investigations at the site.
