Confederate Cemetery Fundraiser
Since 1873 the Southern Memorial Association has privately owned and maintained the 3-acre Confederate Cemetery in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The association will have a drawing on Saturday June 6, 2010, during the annual memorial service at the Confederate Cemetery. Tickets are $1.00 each and all money will go toward the maintenance of this historic Confederate Cemetery. The winner will receive a beautiful hand-made crosstitch of the five flags of the Confederacy with a quotation by Jefferson Davis, “The principle for which we contended is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form."
The crosstitch is framed 18" x 15" and signed on the back by UDC member, Mrs. Heidi Smith, of Arkansas, who donated this lovely work of art to the Southern Memorial Association. Heidi is the 3x-great granddaughter of James Hansford, 6th Georgia Infantry and 3x-great granddaughter of Abraham Hill, Beauregard’s S.C Light Artillery, as well as having 73 other documented Confederate ancestors.

All mail will be answered. We are just several ladies who voluntarily carry on the work of the founding ladies of 1872. We receive no money from any endowments and not a penny from any public funds, taxes or otherwise. We exist only by small private donations and plan to keep it that way. Thanks for any help.
