The battle was the bloodiest ever fought in California but led to the capture of Los Angeles and ultimate American victory in the Mexican-American War.
Volunteers will set up a 19th century Army encampment, fire a historic 12-pound howitzer and re-enact events from the perspective of both U.S. and Mexican soldiers.
The free event takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park, 15808 San Pasqual Valley Road in Escondido.
The historic battlefield is located about a mile east of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
