Ohio Division 2005 Convention

April 2nd, Worthington Library, Worthington Ohio

 

It was a cold and wintry day in Worthington on April 2nd but it didn't deter the warm comradeship that embraced the members of the Ohio Division during the 2005 Convention.  An enjoyable time was had by all.  We were honored to

have T. Tarry Beasley II, the Commander of the Army of Tennessee along with the Adjutant of the AOT, Bill Wilson.
