Company H returned to Hollywood Cemetery this chilly Saturday to commemorate five more original members of the 53rd Virginia. Each of these men received a new headstone. Colonel Blevins and Captain Durvin led the dedication of Milton Carlton and George Hargrove of Company D, Robert Eggleston and Weldon High of Company K, and Marion Dove of Company G. Scott Wyatt led the presentation of the colors of the United States, Confederate States, and Virginia.
Many members were able to attend this memorial. It is always an honor to remember those who served. As reenactors of the 53rd Virginia, it feels like an even greater honor to be a part of this unit when you commemorate those who were really there.Grave Marker Dedication at Hollywood CemeteryJuly 28, 2007.
