When you think of the Civil War, you usually think about the North and South battling it out.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Palmido Hill that took place near Boca Chica Beach.
This morning Wilson Bourgeois and Ruben Cordova with the Cameron County Historical Commission joined Sunrise to discuss their annual symposium and reenactment.
