DEDICATED IN LOVING MEMORY OF
"Tis a joy to be rose!"
Everyone knows Ms. Robin Terrazas as the woman who led the defense of the Confederate Cenotaph that stood in the center of Travis Park for over 100 years with her sisters of the UDC Albert Sydney Johnston, Chapter #2060 in San Antonio! Since then she has toured the Lone Star State, visiting other UDC Chapters & SCV Camps on the subject of preserving what remaining monuments to the boys who wore the grey, and has testified before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
But not many people know about her talents as a musician. Robin is also a gifted guitarist and singer. In 2012 she was featured in LoneStar Music magazine featuring "Let's Take Two". The Houston-born, Mississippi-raised southern belle grew up singing in church choirs and such and recorded backup vocals for the likes of Dr. John and Marva Wright. Her program is on the history and origins of Confederate Music, including the well-known "Yellow Rose of Texas".
Nestled in the base of the Texas Hill country, filled with history and legends. The beautiful and historical city of San Antonio sets the stage for the return of the 127th Texas Divison Reunion for the Sons of Confederate Veterans!
Only this time, it's more than what you expected... Come for the Reunion, stay and play!
To kick off the 2024 Reunion; the members of Hood's Texas Brigade, Camp #153 invite you to their Runion Kick-Off Party and meet the host camp the night before. Then on Friday we will be honoring the local Confederate Heroes in the largest Confederate Cemetery west of the Mississippi with a special remembrance ceremony & black rose service. Later as the western sunsets and the stars at night shine big and bright, the evening gets social with the Commander's Reception. Our own Div. Commander, Michael Hurley invites you to kick back and catch up with your fellow compatriots from across Texas.
After the business is handled at the first half of the convention, we gather and celebrate all the camps and their member's hard work with the Meritorious Awards Luncheon. And when all the business is put to bed, we dance the night away and enjoy good eating with the Lone Star Grand Southern Ball & Banquet. Sunday before heading home, Div. Chaplain James Bozeman will give a prayer service after breakfast, so we don't miss out on going to church! To close out, the Division Executive Council & the TSOCR Board of Directors will finalize any last minute business.

Texas Society Order of Confederate Rose.
