The Mother of Confederate Reunions-- Part 2

Dr. T.C. Glover organized and fought with Co. A, 21st Georgia Infantry and was in 107 actions until he was killed at Winchester, Virginia. His wife, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Susan Camp, is buried in Corsicana, Texas. A marker on her grave says that in 1867, she rode the countryside around Campbellton, Georgia, to assemble her husband's comrades and have a basket dinner and "to talk over the war." //// This is believed to have been the first Confederate reunion and as such, deserves the moniker "The Mother of Confederate Reunions." It was held in June 1867. //// Swapping Stories and Meeting Old Friends. --Old Secesh
