Fisherman’s Wharf Restaurant at Pier 21 in Galveston, in the Wharf Room
Meet-and-greet to start at 6:30, with dinner and program to follow. Squadron business meeting will be held afterward.
Charles Edward Hawkins, namesake of the Hawkins Squadron, is best remembered today as the senior officer of the Texian Navy during and immediately after the Texas Revolution. But Hawkins’ service to the Texas Republic was only the final chapter in a career full of adventure, violence, and tragedy that was remarkable even in those turbulent days. Join us on January 5 in Galveston to learn more about Charles Hawkins’ unconventional and controversial past.
[This presentation replaces one previously announced, that will be held at later date.]
Adm. Andy Hall is Operations Officer/Historian of the Charles E. Hawkins Squadron in Galveston.
