Noon Lecture

Texas, the Anaconda, and the Milam Street Blockade Runner
by Andy Hall

The Heritage Society Tea Room
Free for members, $5 for non-members

During the American Civil War, Texas played an increasingly important role in the smuggling of materials in and out of the Confederacy. Hall will discuss the important role Houstonians played in that, and made fortunes that served as a foundation of legacies remain woven into the community's fabric today. But did a blockade runner REALLY make it all the way up past Allen's Landing?
