The Civil War battlefield of Palmito Ranch has many historical secrets to reveal. Palmito Ranch: From Civil War Battlefield to National Historic Landmark, by Dr. Jody E. Ginn and William McWhorter, showcases new historical research on the battles that took place there, and reveals the decades-long processes behind the preservation of the battlefield. Come join Dr. Ginn, an accomplished author of Texas Ranger History, and McWhorter, the Texas Historical Commission’s Military Historian from 2005-2016, as they discuss how a national cleanup day and local constituent building combined to save this important place.
