Letter From S. H. Hows, Nashville, Tennessee, About Renewing Confederate Veteran Magazine.

One of the most faithful subscribers to the VETERAN is S. H. Hows, of Nashville, who sacrificed a leg in the Confederate service. On the 16th of March, 1922, he rounded out seventy-eight years of active life, despite this handicap. In writing the VETERAN to renew his subscription , he used a pen captured from the Ynaks in December, 1864, on Hood's advance into Tennessee, and which he had been using ever since. Says he couldn't do without the Veteran. He joined the Confederate army in September, 1862, and was paroled at Gainesville, Ala., May 10, 1865, with Forrest. He has his parole framed with the pictures of Davis, Lee, Jackson, Forrest, Morgan, and other great Confederates.
