Background:  Confederate History Month is a month designated by seven governments in the Southern United States for the purpose of recognizing and honoring the history of the Confederate States of America. April has traditionally been chosen, as Confederate Memorial Day falls during that month in many of these states.

 

It is important for all Americans to reflect upon our nation’s past, to gain insight from our mistakes and successes, and to come to a full understanding that the lessons learned yesterday and today will carry us through tomorrow.

 

In honor of Mr. Danny Bert Blackmon, deceased member of the St. John Richardson Liddell Chapter of the Military Order of the Stars and Bars, Felisha Anderson, Archives and History Director, requests that the Baldwin County Commission adopt a Proclamation proclaiming April 2021, “Confederate History Month” in Baldwin County, Alabama.
