Lee-Jackson Dinner

Last Saturday night, the Sons of Confederate Veterans Samuel A. Hughey Camp 1452 celebrated Generals Lee and Jackson’s birthdays with its 24th annual dinner honoring the occasion. A good-sized crowd turned out to honor the two Confederate generals, including members of the Varina Howell Davis Chapter 2559 United Daughters of the Confederacy.

The participants enjoyed a splendid dinner prepared by Linda McCan who, in this writer’s opinion, should start her own catering business! Following dinner, the Honorable Al Canon gave a talk about the two celebrated generals.

The gathering participated in an auction to help raise money for a proposed Mississippi monument that the camp would like to have erected at Shiloh National Military Park in Tennessee. Following the auction, a candlelight vigil was held honoring the two generals, as well as each member’s ancestor, who was called out by name. The annual dinner was a great experience for all.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.
    Superb Blog!
