Join the Wayne County Civil War Roundtable for their September Program, “Margaret Junkin Preston, Poetess of the Confederacy.” The inspiring life of a Northern woman married to a Southern man, Margaret Junkin Preston shared the sufferings and passions of the South. Her book, <em>Beechenbrook: A Rhyme of the War</em>, was beloved throughout the South as a tribute to the families devoted to the “lost cause.” Throughout a life filled with loss and disrupted by war, her faith in God and devotion to family gave her strength to persevere. Beyond her achievements as a poet, she was also surrounded by influential men: her father was the president of Washington College, her husband was the founder of the Virginia Military Institute and her brother-in-law was “Stonewall” Jackson. Raylene Hlavaty of Jeromesville is sure to do an outstanding job portraying Mrs. Preston! The presentation will be introduced by a sampling of Civil War songs accompanied by guitar and harmonica. In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, which was publicly announced September 22, 1862, the Proclamation will be read that evening.
