Confederate History Month 2011 brochure update

Dear Friends,

Are you ready, its getting close to April—Confederate History Month? Please repost this letter to everyone you know.

In my recent Confederate History and Heritage Month 2011 report, I asked everyone to serve your Confederate History Month committee as Ambassador of good will to spread the good word about the April’s Month of Southern Remembrance. One way you can help is by downloading the Confederate History Month brochure attachment here or you can purchase to distribute to schools, libraries, organizations, churches and pass out wherever you go.

You can purchase brochures as below:

The brochure after folding and stapling is 5 and one half by 8 and one half inches--eight total pages. The cover page highlights the Thomas Legion of Cherokee Confederate Veterans at the 1903 Convention in New Orleans and back page is of Confederates Heroes Birthdays. It is printed on a heavier 28 pound white bond paper and looks great with a first and third national CSA flag on front page and the brochure is full of Confederate history that needs to be read by our young people who are our next leaders.

The Confederate History Month Committee of the Sons of Confederate Veterans offers you the brochure on attachment here or you can order through me as below.

Order in bundles of 25 brochures at $19.00 a bundle, break even price, which includes postage and make check made payable to Calvin E. Johnson, Jr. and send to: 1064 West Mill Drive, Kennesaw, Georgia 30152.

Ms. Rutherford also wrote a monthly newsletter from 1923 to 1926 entitled “Miss Rutherford’s scrapbook” and in 1920 wrote the book “Truths of History.”
