- 19-Oct-2019 : Cub Scouts re-enact famed but forgotten 1840s march by the Mormon Battalion. This even was organized by scout leaders from Carlsbad Stake but invited many community packs to join them. 30 Cub Scouts from six North County packs got a living history lesson when they retraced some of the final steps of the battalion’s journey. Toting wood replica muskets, ammo bags, belts, buckles and the jerky and biscuits the original soldiers ate, cub scouts in Packs 701, 704, 712, 714, 741 and 787 retraced five miles of the battalion’s path along the trail known as the Great Southern Overland Route of 1849 near Julian. Among the trekkers was 9-year-old Saiji Clark of Oceanside. He said the experience opened his eyes about the sacrifices made by the Mormon Battalion.
