Jim Beckner gives a presentation on "Confederate Veterans Homes"This month was our annual indoor picnic!  Lots of great food was homecooked side dishes and desserts were shared with the CWRTWM provided fried chicken.  To top it off, Jim Beckner gave an excellent presentation on "The Story of the Confederate Veterans Home at Higginsville, MO" including a short history of the creation of Confederate various veteran's homes across the country and their locations.  It was interesting to learn that, without federal funding, how the Confederate veterans who weren't able to care for themselves were cared for.

For our next month's meeting, Bob Ford is scheduled to give a presentation on the "Civil War in St. Joe".  You won't want to miss this one.
