Southern Heritage <br>News and Views: Texas Monument Dedication at Gaines' Mill

Friday, May 25, 2012

Texas Monument Dedication at Gaines' Mill

The flyover was paid for by the Texas Division, SCV.

The Richmond Battlefields Association dedicated a monument to Hood’s Texas Brigade on the Gaines Mill battlefield near Mechanicsville on Saturday, May 19, at 2 p.m.

The Texas Battlefield Monument is the first on a Hanover County Civil War battlefield and recognizes the Texas brigade commanded by General John B. Hood that is commonly credited with being the first to break the lines of the Union Army on June 27, 1862. The result was General Robert E. Lee’s first battlefield victory.

Oh praise the Lord! It's always encouraging to see folks out there who really care about our heritage, and do things to preserve it. Thank y'all for all you do keeping us updated at what all is going on (even if we don't comment!)

God bless you for all your efforts!

For God and Dixie,
