Pride of the Purchase

Kentucky gathered in Paducah for the annual reunion this year, and how fitting after the national SCV’s purchase of land adjacent to the Tilghman house has ensured the long-term preservation of this important Confederate site.

Nice to have a place of our own. Continued on the next page. Photos © Don Shelton
