|Daughters of 1812 hold luncheon|
The United States Daughters of 1812, Gov. William C.C. Claiborne Chapter, met Jan. 8, at Bayou DeSiard Country Club for their annual business and luncheon meeting.
This meeting is traditionally held on Jan. 8 to commemorate the Battle of New Orleans occurring on that date in 1815.
Andrew Jackson combined a diverse group of participants to effect a stunning victory over the British — the last armed conflict between the United States and Great Britain.
Chapter president, Mrs. Herbert E. Jakes, welcomed the group with a New Year's greeting. Kay Katz was hostess.
Following the chapter ritual, the president called for old and new business. Committee reports were given.
A national defense report was given by Mrs. Philip B. Brown of Lake Providence. She cited an article by Patrick Buchanan where he says "in our diversity is our strength," but goes on and discusses whether this is actually the reality, or is it "out if one many."
The chapter nominating committee consisting of Mrs. Wilton O. Bell, Mrs. Harold Clark and Mrs. John J. Stack, presented the slate of officers for the next term. These were voted upon and elected.
Following the luncheon and before the business meeting members heard a talk on the War of 1812 by Mr. Ben Katz. He had researched from a number of sources and passed out to those present an "American History Timeline, War of 1812." This gave 24 significant events occurring from 1803 until January 1815.
The first event covered the reasons for the War of 1812, where "the British impress approximately 10,000 Americans, forcing them to work on British ships." Then came harassment of American ships.
The tenth item on the timeline was June 18, 1812, when America declared war against the British.
This war is known as "Mr. Madison's war" or the second American Revolution. The 24th item in the timeline was "Andrew Jackson scores a huge victory and paves the way to the White House. 700 British are killed and 1,400 are wounded. The United States only loses eight soldiers."
In his report, Katz touched on several unknown facts he had found about the war and says he found this "a very interesting war."
Those present were Mrs. Herbert E. Jakes, Mrs. Philip B. Brown, Mrs. Ralph Lane, Miss Luella Snyder, Mrs. J. Harrell Lary, Mrs. John J. Stack, Mrs. Cotham Haddad, Mrs. Wilton O. Bell and guest speaker, Mr. Ben Katz.
The chapter's next meeting will be on July 17, 2008.
