San Jacinto Project with Amanda Danning

In partnership with Forensic Artist Amanda Danning, the Museum is interested in learning more about those that fought at the Battle of San Jacinto.  More specifically, the San Jacinto Project looks to put faces on five of the soldiers from the Mexican army led by Santa Anna.  Using medical models made from the actual skulls of these soldiers, Ms. Danning works in clay to construct a detailed representation of how the soldier may have looked. 

Amanda Danning will be at the Museum working on the skulls April 17-20. The public is invited to sit in on her presentation sessions to watch and learn about this fascinating process during three different presentations daily.
