In Episode Three of Galveston.com’s new video series, Artifacts. Stories., George Osborne and I see cannon ball damage from the Civil War on a downtown building and Eleanor Barton shows cannon balls on display at the Rosenberg Library. This is the first of three episodes about the Battle of Galveston that began on January 1, 1863.
About nine months ago, I made a personal commitment to learn more of Galveston's colorful history. I understand that this is not a cinematic work of art. I'm simply sharing what I learned. If you have any suggestions for improvement - or story ideas! - please post them in the Disqus comments below.
