Foundation Presentations: Ulysses S. Grant’s Galveston Visit

January 10 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

$10

Join us for a lecture at the 1859 Ashton Villa with historian Ed Cotham. This special lecture dives into the 1880 visit by Ulysses S. Grant to Galveston. Ed Cotham is the prize-winning author of many books and articles on Civil War history, emphasizing the battles and skirmishes in Texas. He is also very interested in nautical history and has served as a project historian for several important Civil War shipwreck projects. Ed, a frequent lecturer on these subjects, also leads occasional tours of Texas battlefields and state historic sites. Ed’s research interests also include a wide variety of historical events in and around Texas. One of the most important events was the issuance of General Orders No. 3 (the “Juneteenth Order”) in Galveston on June 19, 1865.
