Members of Louisville, Kentucky Albert Sidney Johnston Chapter No. 120 United Daughters of the Confederacy answered questions on Confederate family heritage April 13 at Pritchard Community Center during the Ancestral Trails Historical Society’s annual book and genealogy fair as part of its April Confederate History Month observance.

The objectives of the organization are historical, educational, benevolent, memorial and patriotic, to collect and preserve the material necessary for a truthful history of the War Between the States and to protect, preserve and mark the places made historic by Confederate valor; to assist descendants of worthy Confederates in securing a proper education; to fulfill the sacred duty of benevolence toward the survivor of the war and those dependent upon them; to honor the memory of those who served and those who fell in the service of the Confederate States of America; to record the part played during the war by southern women, including their patient endurance of hardship, their patriotic devotion during the struggle and their untiring efforts during the post-war reconstruction of the South; and to cherish the ties of friendship among members of the organization.

Those interested in membership can contact the chapter by mail at Albert Sidney Johnston Chapter No. 120 United Daughters of the Confederacy P.O. Box 773 Pewee Valley, KY 40056-0773.
