(April 5, 2008)  Enlarge "Hard Living for a Hard Lot"
Lives of the soldiers and sailors are examined in this new interpretive sign. It was a hard life for everyone! A guest speaker once said the statue of shirtless Dick Dowling was declared by his daughter as the most accurate likeness of her father except the shirtlessness. Not one soldier ever would have been shirtless as there are mosquitoes by the thousands both day and night which added to the misery

This Monument to the dead of the Union Army and Navy was erected and dedicated in 2007. It stands below the monument to Dick Dowling and his men who defended Fort Griffin. The photo was taken on April 5, 2008 after the Park Day clean-up promoted by the Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT). You can plainly see what a great job these volunteers did at Sabine Pass Battlefield
