Georgia history presented to ECI

by | March 31, 2008 12:00 am

Eighth grade Georgia history classes at Emanuel County Institute were visited recently by Judy Womack, member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and Fred Womack, who reenacted Corporal Clavius Phillips, a member of the Chatham Artillery.

Mrs. Womack gave a “living history” presentation on Phoebe Pember, a Charleston, SC., native who dedicated herself to doing everything possible to relieve the suffering of soldiers during the Civil War. According to Mrs. Womack, Phoebe did everything from administering medication to patching wounds for soldiers. She also served as a final companion to the soldiers who were dying and helped by writing letters, reading stories, playing cards, praying and talking.
