Civil war books donated

Two local groups unite to make library donation
The Col. W. H. Parsons Chapter/Military Order of the Stars and Bars and the Daffan-Latimer Chapter/ United Daughters of the Confederacy have donated eight books on the Civil War era to the Ennis Public Library.
“It is hoped that these books will be useful to students of the Civil War period, and we are pleased to be able to make this contribution,” said Jim Templin, spokesman for the groups.
Among the volumes donated are:
• Civil War by Bruce Catton
• Civil War on the Western Border by Jay Monaghan
• The South Was Right by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy
• Myths and Realities of American Slavery by John C. Perry
• The Orphan Brigade – The Kentucky Confederates Who Couldn’t Go Home by William C. Davis
• Robert E. Lee – A Biography by Emory M. Thomas
• The Confederate Reader by Richard B. Harwell
• Shiloh – The Battle That Changed the Civil War by Larry J. Daniel
Of the two organizations donating books, the Daffan-Latimer Chapter of the UDC is a local unit established in 1896 and one of the oldest in the nation.
