Heather---CockadesHeather Sheen, author of an exclusive Home School Column that appears in The Times Examiner, was guest speaker at the July meeting of the 16th Regiment, SCV at the Phoenix Inn in Greenville.

Miss Sheen is a home-school graduate with a BA in History. She and her family have enjoyed exploring historical subjects for many years. The Sesquicentennial events of the War Between the States inspired her to begin researching cockades of that era. She is now an international authority on the rare subject that is virtually unknown by most Americans, although cockades are a part of our history and are seen in many famous portraits of the early days of our republic. They were especially popular during the American Revolution and the War Between the States.

Sheen now constructs by hand and sells cockades at special events and through her website: www.creativecockades.com.
