CONFEDERATE REUNION DATE
Big Gathering- Wilt Be Hold at
Memphis June 8, C and 10.
Memphis, Tenn. The nineteenth an
nual reunion of the I'nltcd Confederate
Veterans wltljbe held Jn this city June
8, 9 'and
10. These dates are officially
announced by Gen. Win. K. Mickle, ad
jutant-general nnd chief of stall to lien.
Clement A. Kvans, commander-in-chief
Of the United Confederate Veterans. The
date were selected at a conference held
with W, J. Crawford, chairman, and the
executive reunion committee.
In speaking of the coming reunion,
Gen. Stickle said:
"I am going to use every clloft I know
of to make the reunion of 1009 one of
the grandest and biggest ever given.
"I am .Inclined to believe more people
will come to Memphis this year than ha
attended any reunion for tho past ten
years. Of course, this must not be un
derstood that more old soldiers will be
here, because that would lie impossible.
The commands are thinning out.
I estimate, however, that wo still
have nlxmt 60,000 left in our organiza
tion. Hut, . of course, there are hundreds
of them unable to travel, and therefore
cannot go to minions. It's Ihe general
public now scattered all over the South,
West and Southwest that always goes to
thew reunion, and I believe this oue
to be, given ,at MerapLla will draw at
least J25.OO0 people."
