City of Warner Robins Proclaims April as Confederate History Month

Executive Department

City of Warner Robins

Proclamation

Confederate History and Heritage Month

April 2011

Whereas: Our country is a nation of people united by a common history of an individual heritage and diverse cultures and Houston County is rich in history of the War Between the States; and,

Whereas: One in five southern men of military age did not survive the war and seven or more Confederate companies (700 or more men) were formed primarily from Houston County which constitutes a significant proportion of her population in the early 1860's; and,
Whereas: The State of Georgia has long cherished her Confederate history and the great leaders who made sacrifices on behalf of the Confederate cause. Confederate Memorial Day has been observed in Houston County for many years; and,
Whereas: The month of April bears special significance since it marks both the beginning and the ending of the War Between the States.
NOW THEREFORE, I, CHARLES K. SHAHEEN, III, Mayor of the city of Warner Robins, Georgia do hereby proclaim April 2011 as "CONFEDERATE HISTORY AND HERITAGE MONTH" in Warner Robins, Georgia and encourage all residents to increase their knowledge of the role played by the Confederate States of America and her people in our country's history.
In Witness Whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the City of Warner Robins to be affixed. This 4th day of April 2011
(signed) Charles K. Shaheen, III
Mayor
