Virginia Flaggers welcome visitors to Richmond and honor the memory and sacrifice of Confederate soldiers with this flag.
“Richmond needed a reminder of her Confederate heritage.” — Susan Hathaway
Meanwhile, back in Richmond’s Hollywood Cemetery.
About 2,000 of Gettysburg’s unknown Confederate dead still rest in Hollywood Cemetery in a spot known as Gettysburg Hill. Many of the Virginians who fell during Pickett’s Charge lay only a few yards away from the resting place of Pickett himself, a decision he made before he passed–to be near his division who fell at Gettysburg. Dr. Weaver’s tireless work gave thousands of Confederate soldiers a proper burial and a home in Hollywood Cemetery, but an unknown number of Confederate dead still lay buried on the fields at Gettysburg, undiscovered, their graves lost to the passing of history.
