Description

This is a facsimile table-top published edition of the original booklet published in 1978 by Polyanthos in New Orleans, with this edition produced and signed by the author. The story of Louisiana Governor Bernardo de Gálvez and the significant contribution of Spain to the American Revolution are getting increased recognition and Col. Montemayor has been at the forefront of this effort for many years. This edition includes his Statement before Congress on April 1, 1976 recommending that the United States accept a gift from Spain of an equestrian statue of Gálvez that now is located by the State Department building. This edition also includes an article in the San Antonio Express-News on May 15, 1976 written in recognition of Spanish aid to the American Revolution. The Battle Journal describes Operations, Articles of Capitulation, Report of Dead and Wounded, and List of Weapons and Munitions. Gálvez never lost a battle against the British defeating them all up and down the Mississippi and in the Gulf of Mexico including the Battle of Pensacola that one historian describes as the greatest naval battle of the Revolutionary War. Gálvez’ efforts permitted George Washington to concentrate on the Eastern US Front. Direct Spanish aid to Washington of supplies, munitions and arms forestalled defeat many times including the siege of Fort Pitt. Includes also a proclamation by President Gerald R. Ford. San Antonio.2003 facsimile edition, 62 Pgs, 8 & 1/2 x 11 Size, PB.
