CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY 2005

This year, because we had installed bronze Confederate Crosses of Honor at Pioneers' Cemetery in Phoenix, the Colonel Sherod Hunter Camp 1525 hosted not one, but two Confederate Memorial Day events.  

 

GREENWOOD MEMORY LAWN CEMETERY, PHOENIX, ARIZONA

The Colonel Sherod Hunter Camp hosted it's 13th annual Confederate Memorial Day ceremony at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery on 23 April 2005.  Pictures of that event appear below.
