The United Daughter’s of the Confederacy, Franklin Chapter #14, hosted the annual Memorial service today at Carnton. It was a blazing 94 degrees when Boy Scout Troop #137 arrived to install a Confederate flag next to each of the 1,500 markers in the cemetery. The Boy Scouts have been doing this for 30+ years according to John Green, Commander.
Just as the service began the wind whipped up furiously.
Here are a few sample pics of today’s service and here is the link to all 43 photos taken of the event.
Video from today’s event will be coming soon, check back.
