Card Text: [on front] 'And 'twill live in song and story, Though its folds are in the dust.' [on back] One of the most pleasing as well as spectacular features of the great re-union of C.S.A. Veterans, which was held in Richmond in May-June 1907 for the purpose of participating in the exercises incident to the unveiling of the Jeb Stuart & Jefferson Davis Monuments, was the arrangement and costuming of 600 school children in the form and colors of a Confederate battle flag. The children occupied a stand within the Lee Monument enclosure, [and] aroused the greatest enthusiasm by their singing of 'Dixie' and other Southern airs.
