Southern Heritage <br>News and Views: ANNUAL LEE/JACKSON BIRTHDAY CEREMONY

Friday, January 11, 2013


SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2013, 11:00 A.M.


As in the past, the annual memorial ceremony at the LEE/JACKSON Monument in Baltimore will be hosted by the Colonel Harry W. Gilmor Camp #1388, Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Maryland Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy. The purpose of this ceremony is to honor General Robert Edward Lee and General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson on the anniversary of their births, January 19, 1807 and January 21, 1824 respectively. The ceremony will also remember and honor the thousands of soldiers who served the Confederacy during the War Between the States.

In previous years, many of you have attended this ceremony even in the coldest weather and because of your effort and dedication to the memory of the Confederate soldier, the ceremony has always been a great success. We would like to once again cordially invite you and your reenactment unit, patriotic organization, and your family and friends to participate in this important annual event. The LEE/JACKSON ceremony will be held on SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

The LEE/JACKSON Monument is located at Art Museum Drive and Wyman Park Drive about two blocks west of Charles Street and across from the Baltimore Museum of Art. This year we will assemble across from the monument.

Paid on street parking by credit card may be required. We cannot park on the Johns Hopkins campus and probably not on their parking lots. There is free parking on some side streets.


* Invocation

* Pledge of Allegiance to the US flag

* Salute to the Confederate flag

PLEASE BRING EVERY CONFEDERATE FLAG YOU OWN, Battle, 1st National, 2nd National, 3rd National, Bonnie Blue, State flags, unit flags, SCV Camp Confederate flags.

* All groups, military or civilian are encouraged to bring wreaths or floral tributes to be placed at the LEE/JACKSON Monument. If you are making a presentation, please let us know who will make the presentation for your organization/unit and check in with the Wreath Coordinator at the event.
