Confederate Memorial Day Observance by the Alabama Division of the SCV at the State Capitol

The following announcement was sent out by Robert Reames, Commander of the Alabama Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  Recognizing your Confederate ancestors and participating in these programs and observances is important especially during this Sesquicentennial period. 

Please join me at the Capitol for the Ala. Division's Confederate Memorial 
Day Observance.

The speaker will be Bill Rambo, Director of Confederate Memorial Park. As 
Director of a park whose sole purpose is to serve as a "Confederate 
Memorial" I can think of no more qualified speaker. Bill is a great speaker, and 
has been at the forefront of the fight to keep funding for this important 
park in Alabama.

We will have music, speeches, and musket fire. Please bring your muskets 
and your flags. If you have a cannon, bring that too. Please come and 
represent your ancestor.

This is the same weekend as the Selma Reenactment so we will be short of 
reenactors. PLEASE bring your uniforms and muskets and help take their 
place. Powder and caps will be available.

Following the memorial observance we will be holding a DEC meeting at the 
Shoney's in Prattville at about 1 PM, following dinner at noon.

For the CAUSE,

Robert Reames
Alabama Division Commander
Sons of Confederate Veterans
