After his capture during the Battle of Sabine Pass in September 1863, U.S. Marine Henry O. Gusley no doubt believed he would toil in obscurity while held in a Confederate prisoner of war camp. He did spend the next nineteen months at various detention centers around Texas, but, thanks to the editors of the Galveston Tri-Weekly News who secured and published his war-time diary, Gusley became a minor celebrity among his Southern foes.
