COL. SHEROD HUNTER CAMP 1525

SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS

CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY

 

Confederate and Union reenactors fire a salute to the Confederate dead at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery during Camp 1525's 1998 Confederate Memorial Day service.

 

Each year we hold what we consider to be the best Confederate Memorial Day ceremony held anywhere in Arizona, at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix.   Twenty-two Confederate veterans are known to have found their eternal rest there.  

 

The song you are hearing is "The Wearing of the Gray," which is always played as a standard feature of our ceremonies. To see pictures of each year's ceremony, use the links below.
