Two attend Gettysburg convention
Article Author: Sharon Cain
The history in Gettysburg is phenomenal. There are monuments throughout the huge National Military Park of Gettysburg representing groups from both North and South who fought at this historic place. We placed a flag at the beautiful Tennessee Monument to honor those from our State. The battle which occurred on July 1, 2, and 3, 1863 is often referred to as “The High Water Mark of the Confederacy.”
Danielle and Courtney, who had been vacationing with their grandparents, were to fly in on Thursday morning from Ft. Wayne, Indiana but got caught in a storm at the Ft. Wayne airport. On their next scheduled flight, parents of a fallen soldier, whose body was arriving in Detroit, needed seats. Danielle and Courtney gave their seats and missed the Memorial Service in Gettysburg which Danielle was in charge of. They felt the parents meeting their son’s body more important as he gave his life so we, here in America, could remain free. The Children of the Confederacy is proud of our youth like Danielle and Courtney who know the meaning of patriotism and sacrifice. Then, when their next flight arrived, it started off without them and the plane had to taxi back to the terminal and pick them up. Quite an experience for the girls. Danielle was elected to the office of Historian General this year. She also received the award for outstanding CofC Female for her work above and beyond her office in the chapter, Division and General levels.
Danielle and Courtney’s father, Dan Cain, mother, Sabrina Cain, grandparents Ted and Sharon Cain, could not be more proud of these two girls for their selfless act on behalf of soldiers everywhere and the honor bestowed on Danielle.
