Lee Jackson is one of the most celebrated days for people who are trying to restore their heritage. This day took place to celebrate the soldiers who gave their life in the Civil War. The Sons of Confederates celebrated this even with dressing up and gathering together as a community of people.
- The Lexington 60 West Memorial Confederate Battle Flag is the 25th flag raised in the Commonwealth since the fall of 2013.
- The result was a solemn march which brought salutes and shouts of thanks. The bagpipes played hauntingly as General Jackson led the procession.
- As we watched the circle fill once, then twice, and still the procession continued, we were overcome with emotion.
“As we made our way out to a parcel of land just West of Lexington on Rt. 60, at the edge of Washington & Lee University, we wondered if the inclement weather would affect the turnout for the dedication of the 4th Roadside Memorial Confederate Battle Flag in Lexington.”
