Confederate Words of Wisdom

“Offer to give a program or two for your favorite school on the true history of the South, because it cannot be found in the textbooks” – From How To Be A Better Southerner (Advice, Observations and Inside Information) by Carolyn Kent, 2003, Southern Renaissance Publishing, Nashville, TN – Available for order through General (found under “supplies” link).

Scrapbooks: History is important

Many people look at fine examples of scrapbooks as only ‘fluff”. It is important that your book have strong historical content. Both as it pertains to UDC over the current year, and the War Between the States.

Update on Oklahoma Division Convention Roster

Indian Territory Division (1903-1908) and Oklahoma Territory Division ( -1908) were combined to form the Oklahoma Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy. Its first convention was held in 1909.

Backlist Introduction

Greetings once again!

Since June, I’ve been sharing lots of things with my fellow Oklahoma Division Daughters via our State-only e-list. All information I’ve shared in the past will slowly be listed here, unless is concerned a specific date that has already passed. Each of these posts will be titled with Backlist for ease of sorting. When this information was posted on the Oklahoma e-list will be listed at the bottom of each post. As the e-list doesn’t archive, I hope Oklahoma members will use this as their history archive for the list.
