I heard Ed Cotham speak last year at the West Coast Civil War Round  Table Conference in Fresno.  He did two presentations . One on the Battle of Galveston and the other on Battle of Sabine Pass.  He is not to be missed if you get a chance.  He was a story teller .  Not just telling the facts but telling the story even adding some humor when it was there to be told.  

Wish I was going to be in the area to hear him.


This years West Coast Round Table in in Sacramento November 10-12.  The theme is Aspects of the War on the Waters.  Ed Bearss and Craig Symonds are speaking .  Our own Jim Strandbery from Orange County Round Table and board member at the Drum Barracks will also be speaking .
