On Friday I had the pleasure of giving an interview on blockade running and Texas during the Civil War for the C-SPAN 2 series, C-SPAN Cities Tour, that highlights the history of smaller cities around the country. The Galveston episode will include interviews with Galveston Historical Foundation Executive Director Dwayne Jones, Texas A&M University at Galveston Professor Steve Curley, and my friend Sharan Zwick from the Galveston Bookshop.
The weather, which had been coldgrayrainingwetyuck for the better part of a week, cleared spectacularly Friday, just in time for the C-SPAN crew’s shooting schedule. I’d like to thank Tiffany Rocque from C-SPAN for inviting me to be a part of their production, and Jamie White and the folks at the Texas Seaport Museum for allowing us the perfect location. The show should air on the weekend of March 7-8.
