I’ve recently added a link on the site to an online text called “Confederate memorial addresses : Monday, May 11, 1885, New Bern, N. C.” The book was done for the Ladies Memorial Society of NewBern and includes some history about the group, a biographical sketch of James Johnston Pettigrew for whom the address was in honor of his monument unveiling, and another address by Rev. L.C. Vass.
In the history of the Society the founding officers are named and include:
- President: Mrs. E. B. DAWES
- Vice-Presidents: Mrs. J.A. GUION, Mrs. W.P. MOORE and Mrs. M. Mck. NASH
- Secretary: Miss H. LANE
- Treasurer: Mrs. Julia LEWIS
I added it to the Cemeteries page because the focus of the even was the monument unveiling. What an interesting find!
