"Battle of Sabine Pass: Dr. Bailey and Dr. Murry Both Distinguished Themselves" newsclipping

Description

This article is a mix of historical facts, individual commendations, and social commentary. The author claims to recount the eye witness interview of Jack White, a participant in the Battle of Sabine Pass. He recounts that Dr. G.H. Bailey was a volunteer (non-military) who helped defend the fort and helped treat Union wounded POWs. The article also recounts that Dick Dowling went against the recommendations of Captain Odlum, and General Magruder to fall back to Taylor’s Bayou rather than fight. The article ends with a plea against the obscurity to which most privates in the war had fallen into – relying on the confederate homes for sustenance and housing.
