"Address of the Reverend J.J. Loomis, at the Presentation of a (Garrison) Flag to the Davis Guards, at Fort Sabine, Sept 19, 1863," newsclipping

Description

In this speech, printed in the Houston Tri-Weekly Telegraph, Reverend J.J. Loomis presents a flag to the Davis guards on behalf of a group of women from Sabine Pass. He likens the battle of Sabine Pass to Thermopylae, and argues the battle was "second to none of the brilliant exploits of the war." Loomis says memory of their courage will live on in the sparkling waters of the pass that will "flow mingling with your fame forever." He ends with a song or poem that praises Confederate and Texan victory and pride.
