The ladies of Winnie Davis 442 United Daughters of the Confederacy® were treated to a wonderful musical experience at their meeting on Monday, Feb. 1, 2016.  Noted composer Greg Lambert has taken letters written home by Confederate soldiers and composed music to accompany the words.  Mr. Lambert, a military veteran of the US Navy, plays the guitar as he sings these words of soldiers who express their longing for home, how they miss their loved ones, and fatigue because of the war.
