To the Heirs of Ballí Spanish & Mexican Land Grants
The “Battle of Medina” Archeological Research



Battle of Medina - Archeological Research

On Saturday June 6th volunteers will depart at 7:30 AM from the McDonalds-Shell station on the corner of loop 410 and HWY-281 South. Please note the change!! From there we will be led to a private ranch where we have permission to search. These locations are in Losoya and we may have access to the Medina River where the retreating survivors had to cross in order to escape the executions.

It is rough terrain so dress appropriately. Please bring your own lunch and water along with shovels and metal detectors. This is not a finder’s keeper’s event; all artifacts will be cataloged and photographed.

Over a thousand Tejanos sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and to this day have not received a proper Christian burial. Your help in finding them is truly appreciated.
