UDC Joins Dixie Outfitters In Raising Money for the Restoration of the Packet Boat Marshall, June 21, 2006
I would like to let everyone know about the Mort Kunstler print, The Final Visit (Robert E. Lee visiting the grave of Stonewall Jackson), that Dixie Outfitters and the Appomattox Chapter # 11 are raffling off. It’s so AWESOME!! It is a Artist Proof, personalized "Special Proof to help with the preservation of the Packet Boat Marshall" and signed by Mort Kunstler, dated April 22, 2006. The proof was valued at $3,500.00 before framing. (Proof shown above before framing.) Tickets are $25.00 a piece, or 5 for $100.00. If interested, you can purchase your tickets through me……(email….True2Dixie@aol.com). or, you can purchase raffle tickets directly from Dixie Outfitters in Madison Heights, VA. Dixie Outfitters is willing, at their cost, to process credit card orders over the telephone for tickets (434) 846-3006; or people can send checks or money orders to:
4886 South Amherst Hwy.
Madison Heights, VA 24572
Dixie Outfitters will then mail the tickets. You do not have to be present to win. The drawing will be held at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Preservation effort of the Packet Boat Marshall on Saturday, September 16, 2006 in Riverside Park, Lynchburg.
For those who do not know about the Packet Boat Marshall, it is the boat that carried Stonewall Jackson’s body from Lynchburg to Lexington for burial. For more information, go to: http://www.lynchburgva.gov/home/index.asp?page=3523
If you would like to see this proof in person…Brenda Beeton & I will have the proof on display this Saturday at the Visitor’s Center of the Staunton River Battlefield Park in Clover, Halifax County, during their Commemoration of the Anniversary of the Battle of Staunton River Bridge. It will be on display at other times at Dixie Outfitters.
Thank you in advance for your support.
