December Meeting 2013

December 10, 2013

IMG_2646The IMG_2645members of Fincastle Chapter 797 met on December 7 for their regular meeting and a Christmas tea.

 

The historical program included a remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor 72 years ago, as well as the reading of Mrs. Davis’ recollections of the last Christmas in the Confederate White House. Her article appeared in the December 13, 1896 edition of the New York World News, for which she often wrote. Many thanks to Teresa Roane, Archivist at the Museum of the Confederacy, Richmond, for providing a facsimile of the original article. You may view a transcription of the article on the Civil War Trust website here.IMG_2648

The Fincastle Chapter wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
