THEORIES ON THE BLUE WING ROAD BURIAL (41BX34) IN THE CONTEXT OF THE GUTIÉRREZ-MAGEE EXPEDITION

Brandon K. Richards, Energy Renewal Partners

ABSTRACT

In 1968, the skeletal remains of an individual believed to have been involved in the Gutiérrez-Magee expedition of 1812-1813 were exhumed south of San Antonio. Since then, the circumstances surrounding what became known as the “Blue Wing Road burial” have remained somewhat of a mystery. This article introduces a new theory that posits that the burial is not directly related to the major battles fought in the region (the Battles of Rosalis and Medina), but more likely an incident involving a Republican detachment encountering Royalists stationed along a well-travelled route.
