26th North Carolina Spreads Rebel Yell

If you were not at the 145th anniversary Chancellorville event, you may have missed the 26th Regiment of North Carolina Troops deliver a real Rebel Yell. They studied a 1935 radio interview in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Private Thomas N. Alexander of the 37th North Carolina Regiment. However, all is not lost – visit www.26nc.org, click on this history link and scroll down the historical resources on the right side of the page. The link “Hear the Rebel Yell” takes you to a page with a biography and photo of Alexander, as well as a long and short sound file of Alexander’s yell.

It’s Revolutionary!

Upcoming historical programs with the OHC, as reported in the Mistletoe Leaves, that may be of Southern interest include:

Music of George Washington’s America – OHC, October 21: While not of the Confederate time period, what came before shaped the men and women of our time.

This costume ball is of the 1800’s, but historical costumes from all era’s are acceptable.

Fall 2009 Greetings

Hopefully this fall has been busy and fruitful for all Confederate homes. After being on the run for over a month, this historian hopes to get back to fairly regular blog posts. Please be pro-active in learning and promoting history in your area. If you have not already done so, join (and participate) in your local and state historical and/or genealogical societies. Oklahoma members will notice that the OHS is a one of my sources. There were many great things of Historical interest to Confederates that members were told about during my time away from this blog. Some to consider keeping up with in the future include: 

Pawnee Bill Ranch House Historic Site and Museum at Pawnee:

September 24, 2009 Homemade Perfumes and Oils Workshop.

Time left to enjoy: October 1-31, 2009 Annual Quilt Show
