Georgia Civil War Remembered

Elizabeth Camp Glover
Mother of Confederate Reunions

In 1896 the Sons of Confederate Veterans recognized this Southern lady as the originator of the confederate reunions. In the centennial year the Sons of Confederate Veterans honored her as "The Mother of the Confederate Reunions". 

She was the widow of Lt. Col. Thos. Glover of Co. A. 21 GA Inf. CSA. Thomas  died in the battle of III Winchester.

In 1867 after the war between the states with "For God and Country" her motto she rode the country side of Campbellton County,  GA to assemble the comrades of her fallen husband to a basket dinner and "to talk over the war". 

Thus began the Confederate Reunions. She lived to be 86 years of age, dying at Corsicana, Texas April 14, 1915. She is buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Corsicana, Texas
