This Oct. 11, the Bellaire Historical Society program hosts author James P. Bevill who tells a powerful story that takes place in the throes of the Texas Revolution, as the provisional government of Texas scrambled to put together a naval force to wreak havoc upon the Mexican supply lines. Having first resorted to the use of privateers, Texas was later able to secure the warships Liberty, Invincible, Independence and the Brutus.
The Bellaire Historical Society will meet on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Bellaire Civic Center, 7008 S. Rice.
Bevill, CRPC, spent his career in the financial services industry since graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston-Clear Lake in 1983. He is also the author of “The Paper Republic: The Struggle for Money, Credit and Independence in the Republic of Texas”, a non-fiction work on the social and economic history of Texas from the colonial period through the annexation by the United States in 1845.
The Bellaire Historical Society meets on the second Thursday of each month (September-May). Refreshments and BHS updates start at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts at 7 p.m. Guests are always welcome.
