If you would like to submit a presentation proposal in any of the related areas listed above, please send a working title and abstract to morrow@tarleton.edu by August 15.

We have arranged for tours of the Camp Bowie area to be provided during the event by City and Rural Rides. Once the website is available, registration will include the fees and times. This will provide an opportunity for a guided tour of the main area of the camp including structures still in place.

An official opening of the new exhibit will be held on Thursday evening September 17 followed by a banquet commemorating the anniversary. More details on the program of these events will be forthcoming, but invitations are being extended to dignitaries to participate. The plans for the banquet include a color guard, music, a video presentation and more.

The event is connected to the Brownwood Reunion which will be held on September 18-20. On Saturday, September 19, the Museum will sponsor a Living History camp from WWII, tours of the new exhibit, and a memorial at Camp Bowie.
