Here are my notes on the ceremony.

About ten braves souls, half descendants, half local history enthusiasts, braved the 105 heat index sun today at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville for the purpose of attending the Memorial, Celebration of Life, & Grave Dedication Honoring Captain Nathan W. Wilcox (1828-1891) of the Missouri Engineering Regiment of the West.

Here are a few pictures of the ceremony.
