Jamie White talked about the Tall Ship Elissa, an 1877 merchant sailing vessel. The Elissa was built when sailing ships were beginning to be replaced by steam ships, and is still a fully-functioning vessel operated by the Galveston Historical Foundation.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Galveston, Texas, from January 16-20, to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
