an appeal for all other Soldiers' Aid so
cleties over the south to take similar ac
tion and unite annually In observing
April 26, as a Confederate Memorial day.
This appeal ment with ready response
.throughout the south, and it is of In
terest to note that from It resulted also
the adoption of a Decoration day In the
north. Mrs. John A. Logan, happening
to be present, in Richmond, upon one
Memorial day, was so Impressed with
the beauty and solemnity of the observ
ance that she suggested, and secured,
the adoption of the idea in the north.
In September, 1894, from these Soldiers'
Aid societies, was evolved the National
Society of Daughters of the Confeder
acy, formed by societies .of Tennessee
and Georgia. At the second annual con
vention the name was changed from
"National," to "United." The society
has now about six hundred chapters.
The object of this association are his
torical, educational, memorial, benevo
lent and social; to fulfil the duties of
charity to the survivors of the war be
tween the states and those dependent
upon them, to collect and preserve the
mateilal for a truthful history of the
war; to protect historic places of the
Confederacy; to record the part taken
by southern women in the work of re-
construction after the war and in pa
tient endurance of hardship and patri
otic devotion during the struggle; to
honor the memory of those who served
and those who fell in the service of the
Confederate states; and to cherish the
ties of friendship among the members
of the society.
Perhaps the largest educational work
undertaken by the society is that pro
jected by the Daughters of the Confed
eracy of Georgia, who have Just laid the
corner stone of a handsome brick and
marble annex to the State Normal
school at Athens, Georgia. This annex
is to be a memorial to Winnie Davis,
the "Daughter of the Confederacy," who
was born in war times at the "White
House at Richmond.
These southern women are earnest, de
voted and patriotic and the following
words, taken from one of their sketches
of Winnie Davis gives the best Idea of
their loyal standpoint today:
"The dear old flag of the stars and
bars, the flag of the Confederacy, is
furled forever. We, as Confederates, are
