Why I Am a Daughter of the Confederacy
I am a Daughter of the Confederacy because I was born a Daughter of the
Confederacy. A part of my heritage was that I came into this world with the
blood of a soldier in my veins...a soldier who may have had nothing more to
leave behind to me and to those who come after me except in heritage...a
heritage so rich in honor and glory that it far surpasses any material wealth
that could be mine. But it is mine, to cherish, to nurture and to make grace,
and to pass along to those yet to come. I am, therefore, a Daughter of the
Confederacy because it is my birthright.
General J. S.
J. S. Griffith #509 Chapter was chartered on October 2, 1901, in the Cartwright
Home on Griffith Ave in Terrell, TX.
