Confederate Memorial Day of Southern memories.
Sir Winston Churchill once said:
“The flags of the Confederate States of America were very important and a matter of great pride to those citizens living in the Confederacy. They are also a matter of great pride for their descendants as part of their heritage and history.”
You ain’t just whistling Dixie!
Memorial Day in America was first held as “Decorations Day” in the South in honor of both the soldiers of Confederate gray and Union blue.
Some folks call the War Between the States, 1861-1865, a lost cause but stories of the heroic—brave men and women who stood for Southern Independence are still cherished in the hearts and souls of many people throughout the South.
Saturday, April 26th is Confederate Memorial Day in Georgia and other states.
The only surviving copy of the permanent Constitution of the Confederate States of America — a part of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library collections — will be displayed a day earlier on Friday April 25 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries at the University of Georgia, 300 S. Hull Street, Athens, Georgia. Read more at: http://www.libs.uga.edu/blog/?p=8612
