William H. Oberste (1899–1983) was a Catholic priest and historian. He was born in New York City and was raised in Clarksville, Arkansas. After successes in his career in the Catholic Church, he established himself as an historian and author. “Remember Goliad” is about for the well-known Spanish fort La Bahia (considered the second Alamo) and the 1836 Goliad Massacre during the Texas Revolution. The first declaration of independence of the Republic of Texas was signed here. An uncommon book, especially signed by the author!

Very Good (bit of wear & some edgewear to covers; contents clean & tight; some browning edge of rear endpaper; actual text spine is bound in & tight but not attached to the spine, which is nice because it allows easy access to the fold-out view).
