April 1861 marked the beginning of the War Between the States. One month later, Annie Hanna was born to John and Athalinda Hanna. John enlisted in the Confederate States Army in November 1861 and served as Private in Co. B, 4th Alabama Infantry.
He was present at many battles in Virginia and served as litter bearer. Athalinda sewed coats for Confederate soldiers and served as Chief Nurse at the hospital in Madison, Georgia.
John and Athalinda are buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Jasper, Florida.
Annie married Thomas Jefferson Darracott and the family moved to Lakeland, Polk Co., Florida in 1895. Annie became a civic and patriotic leader going on to become the founder of the Lakeland Chapters of United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1904, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and The National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century. She proposed and spearheaded the effort to erect a Confederate monument in Lakelandʼs Munn Park in 1910. The figure of a gallant Confederate Soldier now stands as a memorial to all who served the Confederacy.
The Lakeland Chapter of UDC changed its name in 1945. Now the Annie H. Darracott 791 chapter of UDC remains committed to these objectives: Historical, Educational, Benevolent, Memorial and Patriotic.
Annie went to heaven in 1956 at the age of 95. She is buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Lakeland, Polk Co., Florida.
We honor her memory, her leadership and her dedication to UDC.
