The Mother of Confederate Reunions-- Part 1

From the Jan. 13, 2014, Douglasville (Ga.) Patch "Our History: The Mother of Confederate Reunions" posted by Lisa Cooper. //// A really great video accompanies the article showing the old soldiers from both sides at reunions. You can also see it at http://youtube/Gel.GasX8FHK from the dovumentary "Echoes of the Blue & Gray." Sure are a lot of goatees on those old veterans. Must have been the style back then. //// Lisa Cooper is a teacher and shows the reunion videos to her classes and "invariably one or two of my little sweethearts would wonder how in the world those old men could fight a war." //// Another thing those kids wouldn't know was how many of those "old men" were still fathering children into their 60s-80s. But, that is another story. //// --Old Secesh
