On Thursday September 27, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. many gathered for an Unveiling Ceremony of the New Historical Marker for The Statue of Bernardo de Galvez located at the foot of Canal St in the City of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Various Organizations and representatives in attendance were as followed: Button Gwinnett Chapter, Georgia Society Sons of the American Revolution, New Orleans Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, General Philemon Thomas NSSAR, Louisiana Society NSSAR, Lady Washington Chapter, NSDAR, Canary Islander Heritage Society of Louisiana, Canary Islander Descendants Association, San Antonio, Granaderos y Damas de Galvez, TX, Houston TX, Galvezton, TX, Jacksonville, Fl, Pensacola, Fl, San Antonio TX, Washington, D.C.

This day celebration was especially significant for both me and my mother Mrs Frances Jane Henderson a (member of the New Orleans Chapter DAR) because of the important role Governor General Bernardo de Galvez played in our family’s ancestral history. That story can be seen here in the PBS segment of the history detective titled: the Galvez Papers

Here are a few photos captured of the days event.  See here
