Format: Paperback
I am a civil war re-enactor who lives in the Houston/Galvestion area. I have found Edward T. Gotham's book "Battle ON The Bay" a very thoughtfull read. He not only gave the history of the battle of Galveston, but throughly developed the main charactures in this battle which occured New Years day; 1863. I could not put this book down. every page held my attention, and i wondered what the next page contained. Not only did it inform me about the history of the area where i live, but i felt as if i were there living it. i am proud to have this book in my library.

I have found Edward T. Gorham's book "Battle ON The Bay" a very thoughtful read. He not only gave the history of the battle of Galveston, he also informed you on the accounts of all the events leading up to Siege of Galveston. But also thoroughly developed the Commanding Officers of both the Union and Confederacy, in this battle, which occurred New Years day, 1863. "BATTLE ON THE BAY" also informs the reader of the accounts from the Confederatec victory to the end of the war. This book had humor as well as excitement. I could not put this book down. Every page held my attention, and I wondered what the next page contained. This book did a good job on informing me about the history of the area where I live.

Format: Paperback
My great-great grandfather and his son died of Typhoid fever as Confederate Soldiers on Galveston Island during the time frame of this historical record. This book gave great insight into the situation they faced and how they might have been infected with typhoid.
Having grown up on the Texas coast I never really new of the Civil War history that had transpired so near my home. Good read!!
