Elizabeth Camp Glover Marker-- Part 1

This marker is located in Corsicana, Texas, and was placed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. It didn't say, but I suppose it is located by the cemetery in which she is buried. I also found that Elizabeth Susan "Lizzie" Camp Glover was born December 18, 1829, in Greenville County, South Carolina. //// Transcription from the marker: "ELIZABETH CAMP GLOVER: MOTHER OF CONFEDERATE REUNIONS" In 1896 the Sons of Confederate Veterans recognized this Southern lady as the originator of Confederate reunions. In the centennial year the Sons of Confederate Veterans honored her as "The Mother of the Confederate Reunions." (I would imagine the centennial refers to 1996.) -- More to Come. --Old Secesh
