The only one of these I've seen outside of the Confederate Cemetery at Higginsville, MO, is at the grave of Col. Robert "Black Bob" McCulloch. His was recently installed. I have seen numerous Confederate veteran graves around my county. I would like to see more crosses.

But I do have a question: Is the cross considered appropriate for every Confederate veteran? Or is it for exemplary service or valor?
