DeKalb Rifles hold September meeting

Virginia Davis was the keynote speaker at the September 13, 2021 meeting of the DeKalb Rifles Camp 1824, Sons of Confederate Veterans. She portrayed Rebecca Hood, a housewife, mother and Southern citizen when Sherman came through Georgia burning everything in sight. She told of the agony of not hearing from her sons who were away at war and her continual prayers for God to keep them safe. In the end, her prayers were answered when both sons returned home after the war free from wounds. Forty four people were on hand to see the performance.
