2010 Divison Convention Historical Evening Speaker

Now that the 2010 Oklahoma Division Convention call has been issued, I’m excited to announce our President’s choice for Historical Evening program speaker. The selection process kicked into high gear in October, when discussions between Division President and Historian were opened. Though Mary’s selection, from three “finalists”, came last month, I wanted to be sure I wasn’t letting the cat out of the bag.

Colonel Bernard R. “Bernie” Cooper, Western Artillery Brigade, CSA will join us, in uniform, for Historical Evening to share his love of Confederate Flags. The Oklahoma Graves Registration, SCV Officer has plans to have something special for each and every one of us. The program promises to be interesting and lively.

Please plan to attend Historical Evening and bring family, friends and Confederate- minded individuals to celebrate with us. If you have an outfit with “Confederate Flavor”, consider wearing it that evening. We are not fashion police, but I know more than just a few of us have Native attire, long skirts, petticoats, and yes – even hoops! The lovely ladies planning and hosting Convention have made arrangements to accommodate everyone interested in History to attend and enjoy the evening with us.

Oklahoma Confederate Tidbit – J. J. McAlester

J. J. McAlester, for whom the town of McAlester, Oklahoma (founded after the War Between the States) was named, was a Confederate officer. His big “White House” was once a famous place for travelers to stop.

Confederate Museum and Mistletoe Leaves

Make a point to seek out the Confederate Memorial Museum item in Oklahoma Historical Society current “Mistletoe Leaves”. The half page article is on page 6 and contains a photo and nice write up of the facility. This officer was able to visit the campus during the 2009 Division Convention bus trip. Don’t fret if you can’t schedule a trip to Atoka, Oklahoma soon, they are online as well!

Message from Hon. Pres. of OK Div.

Can you believe a whole year has past since our Centennial Celebration?
 
It is time to pack our duds and head south to celebrate the beginning of our second century.  I know the Dixie girls have big plans for us, and I am really looking forward to seeing everyone, and sampling their southern hospitably!
 
There a very few Centennial Pins left.  This is your last chance to get one.  Call me (918 248-4521) or email me (OkieCuzin@aol. com) to get your name on the list.  I will bring them to the Division Meeting.  They are $35.00 still … a real bargain …once in a lifetime commemoration in OK UDC.  If someone wants it mailed to them … mailing fee is $3. to me.   Checks made out to OK UDC Treas.  Remember this is your last chance.
 
Can’t wait to see everyone.
 
Barbara Crew Hutton,
Oklahoma Honorary President of Division

Backlist: First Posted History Bit

ShoutBlogPart of being part of a larger group of like-minded folk is to share information. Please feel free to share historical information with all of us through this elist. Even information that is not centered specifically on the War Between The States! More historical information gets the “juices flowing”, keeps us in the honoring and preservation mood and excites the senses. I’ll holler out things from time to time, please join me :o)

 
If you haven’t already joined the OK Hist. Soc. – consider doing so. In addition to the quarterly deliverd to your door, you’ll get the monthly Mistletoe Leaves, free admission to OHS museum gallaries, and much more – besides supporting history of the geographical state area.
 
If you are interested in volunteering at the OHC (OKC), consider going to their volunteer open house Saturday, August 30, 2008 from 1-4PM in the Chesapeake Room.

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.
