Union (German, Galveston)

Purchased in 1855 from F. Muhr by Ferdinand Flake, Die Union, under multiple titles, served the Galveston area until 1872 as Texas' first German-language newspaper. As the name indicates, Die Union was a pro-Union, antislavery newspaper; Flake represented a small, elite minority of educated liberals. He published his liberal opinions in multiple Texas newspapers, including Die Union.
