Second battles?[edit]

Isn't this the second battle of Galverston? The external link leads to another battle...68.95.138.120 05:12, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes. I added some new wording and linked this to the Second Battle, not the first. 8th Ohio Volunteers (talk) 12:42, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

Neptune?[edit]

The first two sentences describing the battle don't make sense. The Neptune is mentioned, but doesn't explain on which side. The sentence says "The Neptune arrived shortly thereafter." After what? The battle section needs to be expanded.GregE625 (talk) 16:19, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Article expansion and renaming.[edit]

There are severe problems with this article. There were two battles of Galveston and this one (subtitled) is the Second Battle of Galveston, Improvements needed and the list may not be in order;

  1. - Name change. The name will of course depend on references and an ability to create a First Battle of Galveston. If there is not enough references I propose Battles of Galveston. I will look into this along with anyone else that might want to join.
  2. - Article expansion. If there are enough references the name change may have to be first.
  3. - References, references, references.
  • I am currently looking at this as well as the First and Second Battles of Sabine Pass, the misnamed Sabine Pass Lighthouse, and Fort Manhassett. There is a lot of interconnection with these articles. Otr500 (talk) 21:54, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
