Hawkins Squadron Meeting, Thursday October 22 at 1800 via Zoom

Friends and Colleagues:

Please join us this coming Thursday, October 22 at 1800, for the next Hawkins Squadron Meeting. This meeting will be held online via Zoom, with login details below.

Our guest will be Roy De Gesero, a Galveston resident and long-time volunteer aboard the 1877 Iron Barque ELISSA. Roy has done extensive research on Samuel May Williams (left) and his business partner, Thomas Freeman McKinney (right), who together were largely responsible for financing and organizing the First Texas Navy in 1835-36.

The Texas Navy Association is a private, 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to preserving and promoting the historical legacy of the naval forces of the Republic of Texas, 1835-46. The mission of the Texas Navy Association is to preserve and promote an appreciation of the historic character and heroic acts of the Texas Navy; to promote travel by visitors to historical sites and areas in which the Texas Navy operated; to conduct, in the broadest sense, a public relations campaign to create a responsible and accurate image of Texas; and to encourage Texas communities, organizations, and individuals, as well as governmental entities, to participate with actions and money, in pursuit of these goals. Membership in the Texas Navy Association is open to all persons age 16 and over who have an interest in Texas history and want to help support the goals of the organization.
