Old Edge Cemetery 2016

On the morning of February 6, 2016 the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 1026 along with members of the Order of Confederate Rose Eugenia Levy Phillips Chapter # 22, and the Chicora Indian Tribe we were able to accomplish a tremendous amount in a short period of time. A final offering of thanks for our history and heritage was offered by Chief Clyde Strickland of the Chicoras in the Lakota language briefly spoke on preservation of our heritage, history and ancestral resting places. Today was proof positive of the saying, “is amazing what can be accomplished when no one is worried who gets the credit.”

Unsure why, but the Confederate Veteran’s graves were on the outside of the fenced area.  A Southern Cross of Honor and a Flag were installed beside the headstone.
