Bernardo Vicente de Gálvez y Madrid, 1st Viscount of Galveston, 1st Count of Gálvez (1746 –1786) was a Spanish military leader and colonial administrator who served as colonial governor of Spanish Louisiana and Cuba, and later as Viceroy of New Spain.
Gálvez aided France and the newly formed United States in the international war against Britain, defeating the British at the siege of Pensacola (1781) and conquering West Florida. The city of Galveston, Texas, was named after him. Gálvez is one of only eight people to have been awarded honorary United States citizenship.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
