Confederate Memorial Stone Project

    This winter the Hobbs Camp undertook the task of  raising money to purchase and place a new stone re-listing all the names from the back of the monument at the Confederate Circle.  The original inscriptions of names are becoming very difficult to read.  On Sunday, 24 April 2005 the three-by-three foot granite stone was dedicated as part of our observance of Confederate Memorial Day. This new stone will help future generations remember the brave Confederate soldiers who died in and around this great city.  

                                    Alabama Division Commander, Leonard Wilson, attended and spoke at the dedication. 

Northeast Brigade Commander Gary Carlyle supported his men by attending and talking to many Camp members.
