Inscribed

“Following the hurricane of 1900, the greatest natural disaster of U.S. history, with the loss of 6,000 lives, civil engineers designed and built a concrete seawall and raised the elevation of Galveston Island, using pioneering materials and methods, so that after almost 100 years and numerous hurricanes, only minimal damage and loss of life have occurred.”
