“My Old Confederate Home” and the Pewee Valley Memorial Day

In 1902 Kentucky’s Confederate veterans organized and built the Kentucky Confederate Home in Pewee Valley, near Louisville for their unfortunate comrades. Some- due to lingering effects from war wounds, other disabilities, or the horrors of combat- were unable to care for themselves.

Next weekend, The Sons of Confederate Veterans, The Daughters of the Confederacy, the Pewee Valley Cemetery Board of Trustees, The Pewee Valley Historical Society, and The University Press of Kentucky invite you to THE ANNUAL KENTUCKY CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY.

On Saturday, June 6 from 10 am – 6 pm The City of Pewee Valley will be hosting various events to commemorate Confederate veterans of Kentucky and the Kentucky Confederate Home. You can attend the General’s Luncheon, performances by the Dulcimer Society of Louisville, take a tour of the home, or meet Rusty Williams and have him sign a copy of My Old Confederate Home at various events throughout the day.
