    FEMA paid $1900.00 to the Texas Historical Commission years ago for replacement of the marker at Rollover Pass, Number 1766. THC gave the money to Galveston Historical Commission to complete the task.

    Galveston Historical Commission wants to rewrite history and change the wording on the marker. The excuse is, there is a new foundry and the font size is different. Waaahhh!! So get a different foundry.

    So why isn’t Galveston County, so arrogant that they take millions of dollars from the state to ruin the same historical area, making sure this task is complete?
