Last week I submitted to this site, a bit on EPPERSON, and stated that the DAR had compiled a book of veterans of the Civil War. I would like to stand corrected and give credit where it is due. The hand made book is called: "Records of Confederate Veterans Alive 1924-26" Compiled by the Oneonta Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, by Vallie Walton Miles.....Melba Lowe
