Sample Confederate History and Heritage Month Proclamation


I sent out a letter about Confederate History and Heritage Month and have received some good response. Some people asked for a sample wording for a proclamation. I used the following for the last couple of years and will use it again this year.

You may use if you like. Ask your city or county if they would present it to you at one of their meetings.

I have received one from the Cobb County, Marietta, Georgia, Commission for last three years and this was done publicly and it was aired live on the cable TV channel of Cobb County. See sample proclamation below:

Calvin E. Johnson, Jr.,
Georgia Division,
Chairman, Confederate History and Heritage Month,
Chattahoochee Guards Camp 1639,
Sons of Confederate Veterans,
Mableton, Georgia
