Ceremony will observe Confederate Memorial Day in F’ville April 26

Confederate Memorial Day, an official state holiday in Georgia, will be observed in Fayetteville on Tuesday, April 26 at 7 p.m.

The ceremonies will be conducted at the gazebo, near Courthouse Square, by members of McLaws Camp of Sons of Confederate Veterans, including a color guard, bagpiper, and a very colorful display of all Confederate state flags.

The occasion has a special significance this year as it begins the Sesquicentennial of the War Between the States which occurred from April 1861 to April 1865.

Everyone is encouraged to attend. The ceremony will conclude at the nearby city cemetery where many veterans of the war are buried.
