10th Alabama marker

From: csa54thala@aol.com


The stone for the marker and the bench for the 10th Alabama marker at Bristow Station was delivered safely yesterday morning. Commander Frank Leatherwood and NEC Brigade Commander Dan Williams left on Monday morning and pulled in to the park around 9 am on Tuesday. They are now on their way back home.

Frank had an ancestor in the 10th Alabama and volunteered to drive the truck to Virginia. Dan followed behind in his vehicle to help defray the cost and drive them home.

The 10th Alabama Committee wishes to extend our thanks to both of them for their help in this project. The dedication service for the completed marker will be on September 22nd. More details to follow. We are looking at a chartered bus and hotel package so Alabamians will be able to make the trip. I will release details as they become available, hopefully by the Reunion.
