Save the dates: 15 and 16 October 2010
The Texas State Capitol in large part was built by the former Confederates in the 1880s. And it contains many outstanding CSA monuments on the grounds and also artworks inside the beautiful building. The entire setting is a testament to the dedication of these men and their families.
This year is the Centennial of the erection of the Hood’s Texas Brigade Monument on the Texas Capitol Grounds, and we are planning a grand re-dedication on Friday, October 15, with an all-day seminar focusing on the brigade and its achievements on Saturday, October 16. More plans are being made and I will keep you updated, plus I promise to get the webpage up to speed soon. We are being assisted in our planning by State Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, whose dedication to ALL of Texas history is legion, also by Sam Hood, Dr. Richard McCaslin, Rick Eiserman and others.
On behalf of the board — myself, Ann Oppenheimer, Secretary/Treasurer, Judy Ostler, Chaplin, and Rob Jones, Counsel — please plan to join us. This will be one of the special events of our lifetime. A commemorative medal will be struck for the event. Remember that Austin is a beautiful city with many historic sites that every member of your family will enjoy.
