Watauga Historical Association – Daughters of Union Veterans
February 2, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Watauga Historical Association is pleased to announce Annabeth Roland Spivey, a representative of the Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, as our featured speaker for the February 2, 2017 6:30 p.m. meeting at Tipton Haynes State Historical Site 2620 South Roan St. Johnson City, TN, 37601.
Annabeth will be speaking about the new Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War (DUVCW ) group that is being established here in East Tennessee.
Many, don’t realize that their ancestor from Carter County and Johnson County most likely served in the Union Army- as this area was overwhelmingly Union.
The Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War is a national group established to remember and honor ancestors who fought in the American Civil War.
Local groups, called Tents, are named for Army Nurses who served in the Civil War or for any loyal woman of the Civil War era whose patriotic deeds during the years 1861-1865 were recorded.
The East Tennessee tent is in process and has not yet been named. If you are descended from a Union soldier who served and was honorably discharged, we invite you come to learn how to apply to become a Charter Member.
If you are interested to find if/ or where your ancestor served, or what unit he/she served with~ Watauga Historical Association members will be there to help you research. Looking forward to seeing you!!
