Confederate Veterans

 8200 E. Hwy. 5

Whitesburg, Ga. 30185


The AUGUST meeting will be August 1st beginning at 7:30 pm. If you are planning on eating at 7:00, please let Si know so he can have enough food for everyone.

 

Our August program will be presented by Eddie on “The Cause”, and will surely be of interest and some good discussion.

 

We will also be discussing the Camp by-laws and signing off on them.

 

A review will be conducted of the proposed Georgia Division By Law Amendments as voted upon at the June 10th reunion in Macon.

 

We will discuss the 4th of July parade in which we won a third place trophy for best theme. A picture of the trophy is at the bottom of this newsletter. Thank you to all who came out and participated. Regardless of the flat tire on the float, we were still able to manage a trophy. Thanks to the ladies and all the other who participated. We could not have made it without you.

 

Just for planning purposes, the September meeting will be the Labor Day Parade, Monday the 4th of September. We will have more details in a later newsletter as well as information on Villa Rica’s Gold Rush Parade.

 

Just as a point of interest – Si is getting married – he proposed and Mary accepted. Do we see a confederate wedding in the making?



  Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans 

    To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate Soldier’s   good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations.

 Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, 25, April 1906.
