Kirby-Smith 327 Sewanee,TN
United Daughters of Confederacy®
The General Organization of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, also known as the UDC, was founded in Nashville, Tennessee on September 10, 1894 by Mrs. Caroline Meriwether of Tennessee, Founder, and Mrs. Anna Davenport Raines of Georgia, Co-Founder.
Five years later on September 30, 1899, the Kirby-Smith Chapter 327 was chartered in Sewanee, Tennessee with 39 members and was named in memory of Gen. Edmund Kirby-Smith. From 1875 until 1893, he was a well-loved mathematics professor at the University of the South in Sewanee. His widow, Cassie Selden Kirby-Smith, was unanimously elected as the Chapter’s Honorary
After 101 years of dedicated service, the Kirby-Smith Chapter 327 chose to disband on August 31, 2000. However, the Chapter was re-chartered and a ceremony was held in Sewanee on August 25, 2002 with 27 members. Today, we are an active and growing chapter. Meetings are held the third Saturday of each month at the Franklin-Pearson House in Cowan, Tennessee.
Our chapter has set up the Joyce Wilkinson Memorial Essay Contest Fund for cash awards to local elementary school students who write the best essays on the War Between the States. Donations are being accepted. For detailed information, contact email@example.com.
