On July 7, the children and I awoke bright and early to drive to Tullahoma, Tennessee to attend a Marker Dedication. There is a nice Confederate Cemetery there that we found last year. Just by chance, we found out about the Memorial Marker Dedication. There are a few Confederates from Arkansas that are buried there and previously there was no marker from that state. The good ladies from the United Daughters of the Confederacy from Arkansas found out about it and rectified that situation. It was a lovely service and they had a few good speakers. The event was held earlier in the morning due to the heat and they seated the crowd in the shade, which was very nice. My children represented the Belle Boyd Chapter of the Children of the Confederacy. The photographer that day was James.
The first photo shows how Vincent entertained himself before the service began. He enjoyed hitting Veronica with his fan.
