  1. Hello, I have the 1907 newspaper article of the 1907 Confederate Reunion in Monroe. It states that Judge Wear of Columbia and my 2nd Great Grandfather W. G Dunn received the Southern Cross of Honor at this event. I noticed W. G. was not listed in the group picture. I was wondering if it was possible that the members were miss identified. He was a member of the Henry Watkins Allen Camp for many years and also a Mason. I would imagine he attended lodge there. Thanks for any help with this.

      1. Yes, that is correct. The newspaper article just stated that it was a ceremony celebrating Lee’s birthday at the Masonic Hall in Monroe on January 19. The newspaper I found this in was the January 20, 1907 The Times-Democrat in New Orleans.
