Confederate Vets Attempt to Organize in 1898

(10/22/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 3/15/1898.

Attention Company

The attention of ex-confederates is called to the fact, that last fall at the call of Corporal Trippett a few of us met and attempted to organize a Camp of United Confederate Veterans.  That organization has not yet been completed and to secure us recognition and representation at the National Re-Union to be held at Atlanta, Geo., on July 20, 21, 22 and 23, 1898.  It is necessary that it be done before April 1st.

I hope that every Confederate in this and adjoining counties that can make it possible, will meet us at Grantsville, on the 19th of March.  Come!  It is a duty we owe to ourselves and to those who are to live after us.  I believe that now, as in the past, you will not prove recreant to duty, or ever falter in the hour of need.

H.A. Ferrell, Capt. Comp'y.
