Campaign For Memorial Coins
Sylacauga is a little late in making their campaign for selling their quota of Memorial coins for the Confederate Memorial being carved on Stone Mountain, but we are sure they will go over the top as they always do.
Sylacauga’s quota is 1,000 coins, and if not sold within the next three weeks the coins will be returned to the Memorial association and the price will be advanced to two dollars each.
The business men of the city are underwriting the purchase of these coins for the citizens in general, in as much as the memorial carved on Stone Mountain near Atlanta, Ga., will be a memorial to the Confederate and the South in general, and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Therefore the local chapter U.D.C. will undertake the retailing of these coins to the citizenship of the south end of Talladega county, and solicit the co-operation of every organization, men women and children to help in putting this over.
The campaign will start Monday, and every one taking one of these coins will aid the United Daughters of the Confederacy in putting over this great undertaking.
