CLF FEBRUARY 2014 GENERAL MEETING HANDOUTS
At the February General Meeting with David Bridges as speaker there were not enough handouts for everyone there so they are available here. Please download and print them.
Mr. Bridges gave us permission to do so since not everyone at the meeting received one. He said similar resources to those listed here can be found in all other states as well.
His topic was "Major James Breathed, Southern Confederate Hero: What makes a hero, then and now ." His book "The Broken Circle" about Major Breathed was available for sale at the meeting. Here is a short film about the book. Information about Rev. Bridges can be found here.
