Rudy Elizondo has enjoyed the good fortune of being involved in his favorite hobby, living history, for more than 30 years. He has participated in History Channel and Discovery Channel documentaries, and re-enactments of the battles for Texas Independence, including the Battle of Gonzales, Battle of Concepcion, Battle of San Antonio de Béjar, Battle of the Alamo, Goliad Massacre, Battle of San Jacinto, and Battle of Salado.

He has participated in Six Flags Over Texas opening ceremonies for conventions and various community celebrations, including Floresville. He has appeared on school stages and outdoor stage celebrations and participated in the “Christmas Along the Corridor” for the entire 20 years of its existence. He also appeared in the music video “Small Town Texas” with singer Dyanne Halliday.

He has portrayed a curandero (folk healer), a Tejano, a Mexican foot soldier, a Mexican peon, a Mexican bandit, Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, Gen. Martin Perfecto de Cos, and U.S. Union Army Col. Santos Benavides (Civil War era). In subsequent articles, Rudy will go into detail about some of these events.

Rudy Elizondo is Julia Castro’s nephew and formerly of Floresville.
