Ladies of Athens Performed for Soldiers’ Benefit
The Southern Banner of Athens reported that the ladies of Athens were still actively supporting the soldiers.
We are requested to give notice that the ladies of Athens will give entertainments at the Town Hall on Thursday and Friday evenings next, for the benefit of our soldiers. Tickets can be procured at the Book Store and the Jewelry stores of Mandeville & Bro. and Homer & Co. Doors open at 7 o’clock. The hall will doubtless be crowded.
