One bullet can make a man a hero… or a casualty.

Confederate Memorial Day

Last month was Confederate Heritage and History month. In honor of this, a special event took place on April 23 at Beauvoir in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Beauvoir, Biloxi, MS

Beauvoir is a beautiful mansion with breathtakingly stunning gardens. It is the home where Confederate President Jefferson Davis spent his last years after the Civil War ended. I have visited Beauvoir many times, and it always amazes me how beautiful it is.

Three days after Katrina

Beauvoir was seriously damaged from Hurrican Katrina. But since then, it has been restored to its previous glory.

Inside Beauvoir

On the grounds is a Confederate cemetery, and in the cemetery is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The wreath laying ceremony that took place on April 23 was in honor of the unknown soldier. Solemn ceremonies such as this take place all across the South during April.
