United Daughters of the Confederacy commemorate 115th year
United Daughters 2
Gayle Breon, President of the John D. Kennedy UDC Chapter stands with Howard Branham, Director of The Camden Archives; and Debra Witt, Chapter Historian.
The objectives of the United Daughters of the Confederacy are: Historical, Benevolent, Educational, Memorial and Patriotic. General Lee said to the Daughters of the Confederacy, “Remember it is your duty to see that the true History of the South is presented to future generations,” and this is what they strive to do. On April 30, 1897, 50 Camden women gathered at the home of Mrs. James S. Haile for the purpose of organizing a chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
