Title

"Dick Dowling, War Time Hero, Sleeps in Unmarked Grave" newsclipping

Description

The article is a commentary claiming that it is unjust that Dick Dowling, "one of Houston's greatest heroes", has an unmarked grave in St. Vincent's Cemetery. The article provides an extremely detailed account of the Battle of Sabine Pass on September 3, 1863, including the preparation (by both the Federals and Confederates), the actual battle, and the immediate aftermath. There are quotes from several eyewitnesses and multiple anecdotes about Dowling and his men.
