We now have power but the telephone and Internet are sporadic...sorry it's taken so long to get this post up. This was a 2-story house!

In Vicksburg we made a stop at the Battlefield and saw the Cairo…a Civil War Union vessel that the Confederates sank in 1862. It was raised during the 1990s and is an interesting site to visit. The National Cemetery is always a solemn place to reflect on our history.

Aggies gathered together on June 26, 1883 to live over again their college days, the victories and defeats won and lost upon the drill field and classroom. Eventually the annual gathering evolved into a celebration of Texas Independence on San Jacinto Day – April 21st. Over time the gathering was named "Muster" and even though the tradition has changed, but its very essence has remained “If there is an A&M man in one hundred miles of you, you are expected to get together, eat a little, and live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas.”
We will be attending the Muster tonight and enjoy eating, listening to a speaker and fellowshiping with Aggies and their friends.
