Members of the Edward Lea Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War reenactment group participate in a ceremony honoring Union soldiers lost at the Sabine Pass Battleground State Park and Historical Site in Sabine Pass on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2007. It was the first event to take place at the park since Hurricane Rita destroyed it almost two years ago.

On Sept. 8, 1863, 48 men repelled an attack by four warships and 1,200 men of the Union Army and Navy. No Texas defenders were lost in the battle.

Again with the strange music that doesn't seem to add to the storytelling.

This seems like an event that could be explained in an interesting way by an involved party.

If you choose not to devote the resources to creating an audio slideshow, why not just make a silent gallery?
