Biographical or Historical Information

The Confederate Soldier's Home was established in Atlanta around the end of the nineteenth century. The home was built as an expression of gratitude to veterans of the Confederate Army during the Civil War (1861-1865). The original home was destroyed by fire in 1901, but the home was rebuilt at the same location due to the generosity of various individuals and organizations. The yearbooks in this collection contain photos of the home site and its residents in addition to a variety of advertisements from supporting organizations.
