Confederate Memorial Service
Last Sunday, the Samuel A. Hughey Camp 1452 Sons of Confederate Veterans held their annual memorial service at the Hernando Memorial Cemetery in Hernando, Mississippi.
Many spectators were on hand to witness soldiers and the Color Guard march in. A prayer was offered, and a talk was given by Commander Randy Hailey about the origins of “Taps.” Afterward, two cannons fired off three rounds, and each round was followed by the soldiers’ firing off their guns.
Following the ceremony, everyone was invited across the street for a barbecue in Conger Park, courtesy of the Samuel A. Hughey camp.
