I’m trying to catch up here once again. One day in May for a little Children of the Confederacy outing, we went to Fayetteville, Tennessee to visit the courthouse. There is a confederate monument there. We also discovered a smaller monument that used to be a fountain erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. That fountain monument is dedicated to the Confederate woman who stayed back home and worked so hard to hold everything together. There is also an interesting story about some women holding a dinner party for the Federal men who were hunting some local Confederate boys. They held the dinner so the local boys could grab some horses and escape. The plan worked.
On the day we went, beautiful roses were in bloom by a bench at another location on the town square. We were able to get some pretty good pictures of the children that day. Enjoy!
