President's Message

 

January 2014

As I begin writing this welcome, I am reminded to remember where I was fifty years ago on November 22.  History does play a role in everyone’s life; be it national, state, local, or personal history. We challenge you to become knowledgeable about your family’s history.

Our membership is daughters, direct descendants, of Veterans of the Union Army of the American Civil War 1861-1865.  We work to preserve our personal ancestral history and help others to do the same.

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 22.  Our goals in 2014 are: honoring our ancestors by keeping their stories alive and celebrating 15 years as an organization.
