Fort Brown Memorial Flagpole
Also in attendance were uniformed members of the 7th Infantry Living History Society and the Alamo Legacies and Missions Association. A concrete and stone marker, originally erected in 1939 by the Lt. Thomas Barlow Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution stands behind the flagpole, moved from its original site about 200 yards west. City of Brownsville Heritage Trail Markers flank the flagpole. One was funded by the Descendants of Mexican War Veterans, the other by an individual DMWV member.
Only two of the fort's defenders died in battle - Major Jacob Brown, for whom the fort is named, and Sgt. Horace Weigart.
