President's Message

January 2015

“Keep green the memory” is used by many.  The user wants the deceased to be remembered by succeeding generations; the memory of that loved one would be fresh.  This is a goal of our membership as we work to preserve our personal ancestral history and help others to do the same.  This year, Union True, a book about members’ ancestors, will be published.  At each meeting, we will “celebrate” the life of a member’s ancestor.  These are just a couple of ways that we will “keep green the memory.”

Our membership consists of daughters who are direct descendants of Union veterans of the American Civil War (1861-1865). 

In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

If you have a Civil War ancestor, please read our website to learn more about us.  We encourage you to contact us and become a member of Tent No 22. 

Doris Dreier Jones, President
