Recapping 2011 Year For The “Jeff Davis” House in Montgomery

In preparing for the end of the year I thought it would be fun to recap 2011 Sesquicentennial events in which the First White House of the Confederacy participated:

 January 19 – celebrated our annual Robert E. Lee birthday party with Bill Rambo, speaker.

February 16 – co-sponsored event with the Dept. of Archives & History, commemorating the evening Jefferson Davis came to Montgomery and Yancey made his famous “man & the hour have met” speech. Dr. Ralph Draughon of Auburn presented the speech by Yancey.

March 8 – our FWH annual spring luncheon, with guest speaker Judge Mark Anderson

May 6 – our Sesquicentennial fundraiser with William C. Davis, speaker

June 3 – celebrated Jefferson Davis’s birthday with Senator Dick Brewbaker, speaker

October 27 – we had our annual fall meeting

On January 19, 2012 at 11:00 am. we will again meet to celebrate Robert E. Lee’s Birthday with Bob Bradley, Chief Curator for the Alabama Archives and History Dept. as our speaker. We look forward to this event.
