From the Commander SCV AOT: I feel it is important to mention that April is Confederate History and Heritage month, which is a perfect opportunity for the local camp and/ or Division to approach their elected official requesting a proclamation. I am excited to announce that the House members of the Georgia General Assembly voted on SB 27 and passed it on Wednesday. The passing of SB 27 will make April recognized by law as Confederate History and Heritage Month in Georgia. This has been accomplished through the SCV members on the Georgia Civil War Commission and those who serve in the House and Senate. It is amazing what can do done by setting a goal and working toward achieving it. I would like to encourage each of you to turn out in force for a Confederate Memorial Service this month. It is highly important that we paid tribute to our heroes and never forget their sacrifices. Many of these men gave all for hearth and home, and some are still buried off in some distant land, far from the home they were protecting.
