Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog

Talkin’ Blockade Runners. . .

Posted in Education, Technology by Andy Hall on February 23, 2012

I’ll be speaking at the March 19 meeting of the SCV’s John Bell Hood Camp No. 50, at Shrimp & Stuff Restaurant in Galveston (7 p.m., in the private dining room). My talk will be a preview of my March 27 presentation at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, “For-Profit Patriots: Civil War Blockade Running on the Texas Coast.”

I appreciate the invitation, and am looking forward to it.
