"Republic of Texas History" Top 5 Page for this destination Galveston Local Custom Tip by msbrandysue

Galveston Local Customs: 12 reviews and 14 photos


While walking up and down the Seawall I found a small memorial to the Texas Navy. Coming from a military family I always make sure to stop and ponder the men who gave their lives and careers for our freedom. Again, this is a small plaque across the street from the seawall but I think it tells alot about the culture of Galveston.

Galveston is very proud of who they are. They are an important area for Texas and the troops have spent much time here protecting this land and it's an important area for victories.

Thank you to those who may be reading this who have helped protect this beautiful state and our wonderful USA!!
