In 1861, an unspoken vow to make tomorrow better than today catapulted a group of Kingston, Georgia women to achieve several historical "firsts." They established the Confederacy's first hospital and held the South's first Confederate Memorial Day. Today, the group, known as the Kingston Woman's History Club, continues the Confederate Memorial Day ceremonies honoring both Union and Confederate dead. Their ceremony is credited with being the longest running of its type in the United States. Loyal to their mission of service, the ladies have served soldiers in every American war since 1861. During peacetime, they turned to community service and became the second chartered women's club in the state. They named the state's flower and established the town's park that is home to the club's two-building museum complex. Written in narrative form, Tomorrow is Better tells the Kingston Woman's History Club's story through the eyes of four generations of altruistic women who weathered war, fire, financial obstacles, and even General Sherman's occupation.
