Fallen Southern soldiers were remembered and had their final resting place in Okolona, Mississippi restored Saturday by members of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. JB Clark as the story for Djournal.com:
Saturday was a day of Civil War [sic] remembrance in Northeast Mississippi.
Actually, it appears the event was not so much about remembering the US war to destroy Southern independence but rather our ancestors who fought for Dixie.
Volunteers with the Okolona Cemetery Restoration and Re-enactment Project began bleaching the 800 headstones of Confederate soldiers in the Okolona’s Confederate cemetery.
The group is preparing the cemetery for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Okolona, in February 2014.
