Wednesday 18 October, four Dragoons took care of the maintenance of Robinson Springs Cemetery. Eight Confederate veterans are buried there along with veterans of the Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, Korea and other conflicts. There are many ancestors of present day inhabitants and founders of Elmore and Autauga counties buried here dating back to the early 1800’s.
Carl French of the Cradle of the Confederacy Camp in Montgomery will mow the large area of the cemetery away from the graves in the next day or so.
Thanks to Skip Ward, Douglas “Bear” Butler and Bill Gill for contributing their labor and time to this Dragoon community service project which is part of the camps commitment to the SCV Guardian program taking care of historic cemeteries. Below you see the participants of the cleanup and a photo of part of the area cleaned up. The Battle Flags that mark each Confederate veteran grave were flying briskly in today’s cooler fall breeze.
