Southern Gentleman, Lest We Forget, 2011
Honored Fallen Comrade
- Feb 20, 2005
Folks, we Southeners need a little help with correctness. Locally, spurred by interest in the soldier unearthed at Franklin, many Iron Crosses (cast iron ones) are proposed to be added to various known gravesites of soldiers. The Confederate ones, as funds are available, about $100 bucks a pop, will be marked as time permits with heavy cast iron crosses. Our challenge, as always, is vandalism and respect for the soldier. We are being challenged in finding accepted "standards" for placements of these markers relative to the existing gravestones or other markers. Local existing examples are not consistent to say the least. Can anyone give us some guidance? Thanks in advance.
