Round Tables Respond to Beauvoir Donation Challenge

Biloxi, MS --- Beauvoir, The Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library is pleased to announce that two (2) Civil War Round Tables have responded to the August 4, 2006 donor challenge issued by the Civil War Round Table of Wilmington, Delaware. Both the Civil War Round Table of Milwaukee and the Robert E. Lee Civil War Round Table of Central New Jersey have made recent donations to the restoration efforts at Jefferson Davis’ last home.

The Milwaukee Round Table contributed $250.00 and the Lee Round Table of Central New Jersey contributed $550.00. “They have shown great concern for historic preservation and set a fine example for other Round Tables and historic organizations. These donations demonstrate the commitment of people from all parts of the United States to our restoration efforts.” stated Patrick Hotard, Beauvoir’s Executive Director.

John D. Beatty of the Milwaukee Round Table issued the following statement: “We challenge all the Round Tables in the world (there are Round Tables as far afield as Britain and Russia) to contribute a least something to the Beauvoir rebuilding project.”

Lee Round Table President Jay Jorgensen also expressed hope that additional Round Tables would step forward and meet the original August challenge.

The board and staff appreciate all donations made towards the rebuilding efforts at Beauvoir. Donations may be mailed to Beauvoir, 2244 Beach Blvd., Biloxi, MS 39531. Questions regarding donations may be addressed to the business manager at or by calling the office at 228-388-4400.
