Confederate Heritage and History Day in Wetumpka

Attended the 10th annual Confederate Heritage and History Day celebration in Wetumpka which was held Saturday April 2nd.  After a parade across the bridge into downtown Wetumpka, the celebration continued in Gold Star Park.  A number of period Confederate flags lined the road fronting the park including a Third National Flag, a Bonnie Blue and many Battle Flags.  A band with members from the SCV Tallassee Armory Guards camp played for the crowd which included a number of reenactors.  Prattville Dragoons Bill Myrick and Stuart Waldo with families were in attendance.  Vendors tables were set-up with Confederate flags, license plates, belt buckles and T-shirts along with hot dogs off the grill and soda pop.
