The ladies of the R Don McLeod Chapter 2469 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy were delighted to participate in Apalachicola's first Civil War History Weekend May 17-19.

 Ten members of the Crawfordville chapter sewed flags, made bandages, spun cotton, and played music throughout the day in the Raney House and Orman homes.  Found along Market Street, both the Raney and Orman Houses are beautiful antebellum homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 "We hope this will be one of many events in which our chapter may participate," said Michelle Kirby, chapter member and UDC Florida officer.  "Apalachicola is full of our rich Southern heritage and should be remembered."
