Battle of Galveston: The Watchmen

In Episode 5 of my video series, Artifacts. Stories., I join Kathleen Maca, author of Galveston’s Broadway Cemeteries, on the roof of the Hendley Building where the JOLO Guard stood watch during the Civil War. Rosenberg Library’s Museum Curator, Eleanor Barton, shows me the JOLO Guard’s log book.
