Confederate Memorial Day


Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, S.C.

Seems like today should have been a holiday in South Carolina.

I didn't get up to Magnolia Cemetery today but I expect there are fresh flags flying over the tombs of Confederate soldiers since it is Confederate Memorial Day. The pictures below are from the tombs of the Hunley submariners.
Confederate Memorial Day is an state holiday in some states in the United States. It gives people a chance to honor and remember the Confederate soldiers who died or were wounded during the American Civil War during the 1860s.
