Meeting of the John Wesley Hardin Secret Society
John Wesley Hardin: Gunfighter, Outlaw, Gambler, Gentleman? This is a person who I look forwardto learning more about as time goes by. I was told about an annual re-enactment of when he was killed that takes place every year on August 19th in Concordia Cemetery where Hardin is buried. I’ve done a little research and found this site to have some good info about him and an even more complete bio on him here.
If you would like to go watch the re-enactment, it will take place Wednesday August 19th (tommorow) @ 6:30 p.m. Cost is $5 per person and $2 for Military/Seniors/Children under 12.
Here is a link to the website if you need more info.
There is a song that plays on the website above from the movie Quigley Down Under, so I thought I would share it with you because whenever I hear it, it now makes me think of El Paso and all of the history that has taken place in this southwest town…even though the movie takes place in Australia.
My name is David and I am living El Paso.
