Andrew Hall - Civil War Blockade Running on the Texas Coast book signing
Brazos Bookstore presents Andrew Hall – Civil War Blockade Running on the Texas Coast book signing on Thursday, June 12 at 7pm.
In the last months of the American Civil War, the upper Texas coast became a hive of blockade running.
Though Texas was often considered an isolated backwater in the conflict, the Union’s pervasive and systematic seizure of Southern ports left Galveston as one of the only strongholds of foreign imports in the anemic supply chain to embattled Confederate forces. Long, fast steamships ran in and out of the city’s port almost every week, bound to and from Cuba.
