Abstract:
Abernethy reminisces about a local tradition in Stanley, Gaston County called the \"Farmers' Picnic and Old Soldiers Reunion.\" The event's main functions served to honor and remember Confederate soldiers. Its secondary role provided Gaston County residents with a mid-summer social gathering. People arrived by car and train to partake of the festivities which included a parade, music, food, and closed with a baseball game.
