The war of Northern Aggression has been over for three years. The good ladies of Fayetteville have decided that a monument should be erected to our CONFEDERATE HEROES on a plot of ground in Old Cross Creek Cemetery. It was decided that a large silk quilt of many colors would be made. After its completion a raffle was held and a gentlemen in Tarboro, NC won the quilt. The quilt was then given to Ex-President Jefferson Davis. At his death the quilt was given by Mrs. Davis to the Confederate Museum in Richmond, VA. The QUILT is still at Richmond. ITS YOUR HERITAGE !
