September/October 2014

Our September/October 2014 issue is at the printer and will mailed out in a few days. Look for your copy around September 1st! The cover story is The Journey, The Very First Confederate Arms Contact. A very interesting story which involves a lot of fate. Ron and Don Kennedy return with our Sesquicentennial essay on Our Re-United Country? The Sad Reality of Reconciliation. An excellent essay I know all our readers will enjoy. All of our usual features are included along with messages from our newly elected national officers.
