†††††††††††† On March 2nd, the Chapter meet in the chapter room to hear Ivan Nielsen give us facts he found about the Confederacy.

The information was a collection of Confederate facts that most folks donít know. For example, the Dr. Pepper soft drink was said to have been named after a Confederate surgeon, Charles T. Pepper. Another example is Coca-cola original creator was Confederate Colonel John Pemberton. He was wounded in the war and became addicted to morphine. He was trying to find a substitute for the drug andÖ I think everyone knows from there what was placed in the drink to curb his need for the morphine.

Also, March 2nd is also Confederate Flag Day. When this was announced, we all reached for our phones and looked it up. (Not that we doubted you Ivan. Just looking of details.)
