blockade-running on the Texas Coast during the Civil War presented by
Andrew Hall. Andrew Hall currently serves as Chairman of the
Galveston Historical Foundation Museum Committee. Since 1990 Hall has
volunteered with the office of the State Marine Archaeologist at the Texas
Historical Commission to help document historic shipwrecks in Texas

notably from 1995 to 2002 on the Denbigh Project, the most extensive
excavation and research program on a Civil War blockade runner in the Gulf
of Mexico. In 2001 Hall was part of the inaugural group of volunteer
marine archaeological stewards appointed by the Texas Historical
Commission, the first group of its kind in the nation. In 2012 Hall
published his first book, The Galveston-Houston Packet: Steamboats on
Buffalo Bayou, with the History Press of Charleston, South Carolina. His
second book with the History Press, Civil War Blockade Running on the
Texas Coast, was released in 2014.
