The Galveztown Replica Project Conference is this afternoon here at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum, with lecturers from as far away as Spain assembling to discuss this exciting project. The Galveztown was the American Revolution-era sailing brig that under the command of Bernardo de Galvez lead the expedition that captured Pensacola, thus taking both West and East Florida from the British during America’s War of Independence. A team of shipwrights at the Astilleros Nereo shipyard in Malaga, Spain are planning on building a full-scale replica of this historic vessel.
