Alabama Infantry Flag Conservation Project
Southern Cross of Honor Applications
I am happy to announce a project by one of our Alabama Division members, Leslie Kirk. She has scanned, copied and indexed 1,490 applications for the Southern Cross of Honor. These are applications filed by Confederate Veterans to UDC Chapters in Alabama, although the veteran may have served in another state. She has completed those in the possession of the Alabama Division and hopes to add to this list from files obtained from individual chapters.
The index has been placed on the Alabama Division website under "Projects." If your ancestor is listed on the index, Leslie will send you a copy of that application either by email or USPS for a small donation of $10.00. This donation will go toward the conservation of Confederate flags at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
She has transcribed the names on the index as she interpreted the handwriting. The names were difficult due to the handwriting, bleeding of the ink, paper color, and also the condition of the application due to deterioration.
It is our hope that this will be a good tool for your family history. If you are interested in obtaining a copy, please contact Leslie at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make checks payable to Alabama Division Treasurer and mail to:
