Confederate Pageant

Portions of a printed program are pasted onto the back of a photograph showing the participants in a United Daughters of the Confederacy presentation of "Southern History in Song and Story," performed at the organization's convention in Memphis, Tennessee, on November 17, 1932. A historical pageant featured the "Heroines of the Confederacy," which included portrayals of Varina Davis, the wife of Confederate president Jefferson Davis; Rose O'Neal Greenhow, a Confederate spy; and Captain Sally Tompkins, a Confederate nurse and the only woman given a commission in the Confederate army. Songs included "Dixie is the Land of Glory."
