SCV 117th National Reunion Murfreesboro TN - Riding with Forrest Pt 4

The final event of Thursday afternoon's tour at the Murfreesboro SCV Reunion was the unveiling of a new monument, perhaps the first of it's kind, dedicated specifically to the Confederate States of America.  A stirring ceremony was held at the Eagleville City Hall highlighted by the unveling of the granite monument.  Dixie was sung by the flag waving crowd.  A reenactment unit provided a salute.  Mayor Sam Toone addressed the crowd wearing a shirt emblazoned with the Confederate Battle Flag. A great conclusion to a wonderful tour at the 117th SCV Reunion.
