Sabine Pass Chronicles

The Articles of W. T. Block

I am W. T. Block's son. My first memory of his historical research was when he came home from the library and said he found evidence of a forgotten fort in Sabine Pass, Texas called Fort Manhassett. He and my brothers went to the site with a compass and discovered several earthen mounds which WT believed were the remains of the fort. On a Friday late in August 1970, I am watching him on TV with a news crew from KPAC in Port Arthur as a crew is using a backhoe to dig into one of the earthen mounds. When the scoop is pulled out of the ground, several cannon balls fall out. By that Saturday they unearthed thirty cannon balls and kegs of gunpowder.

WT was still attending Lamar University working on his MS degree in History at the time. In the decades following he would go on to publish nine books, write eight unpublished manuscripts, and write more than one thousand newspaper and magazine articles.

This book is a collection of articles WT wrote about Sabine Pass, Texas and the first chapter in the book is a newspaper article that was published in the Port Arthur News on Sunday August 30, 1970, describing the event when the fort was being excavated.

WTBLOCK.ORG has worked to preserve WT's work and this book is the 22nd book in that effort.
W. T. Block's son, William T. Block, III
