Description:

Observance of Confederate Memorial Day

 

Saturday, April 28 is the date for the annual local observance of Confederate Memorial Day, with joint participation by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Wiggins Battery, and our Historical Society.

The event provides a way for local descendants of Confederate soldiers to celebrate their heritage, and for all to also remember that some from this area supported the Union cause during the Civil War.

The observance begins at the Mountain Home Cemetery at 10:00 a.m. (weather permitting) where a Cross of Honor and wreath will be placed at the grave of one of the Confederate veterans there, with an account of his life and military service.

Groups will then gather on the courthouse lawn at 11:00 for remarks of representatives and firing of a salute. The morning will conclude by gathering for a potluck meal in the courtroom.
