Battle of Galveston Memorial Service, January 6

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on December 30, 2017

Friends and Colleagues:

Next Saturday, January 6, I will be giving a brief address at the memorial service for Lieutenant Commander Edward Lea, who was killed at the Battle of Galveston on January 1, 1863. The ceremony is an annual event that remembers those killed on both sides of the battle. The lead organization sponsoring the event is the Edward Lea Camp of the SUVCW, with additional participation from the SCV, UDC, the Masonic Lodge, and other groups.

The service will be held at Old Episcopal Cemetery, near the 40th Street. entrance to the cemetery complex on Broadway in Galveston. The event will begin with a short procession from the 43rd Street entrance starting at 10:30 a.m. I hope to see many of my Houston/Galveston friends there.

Happy New Year to all!

    Good for you! And I’m glad the Galveston and Houston area is still aware of its history.

    Happy New Year
