Battlefield Dedication

The historian Philip Alexander Bruce is invited to the June 22, 1932, dedication of the Richmond section of Virginia's Battlefield Parks by Governor John Garland Pollard. The event coincided with the forty-second reunion being held by the United Confederate Veterans to honor those who fought for the Confederacy during the Seven Days' Battles between June 25 and July 1, 1862. The official seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia at the top of the invitation is festooned with the Confederate flag and the state flag.
