Sabine Pass; the Confederacy's Thermopylae

Sabine Pass In an 1882 speech, former Confederate president Jefferson Davis made an exuberant claim: 'That battle at Sabine Pass was more remarkable than the battle at Thermopylae.' Indeed, Sabine Pass was the site of one of the most decisive Civil War battles fought in Texas. This book provides a scholarly account of this remarkable victory.
