tour of Oakwood Cemetery. Led by Tim Kent, the group was given the history of our Confederate ancestors who lay in rest here.We were all proud and honored

to be able to pay our respects to these Confederate Heroes and remember the sacrifice they made for their beloved Dixie. We ended the day at the Confederate Memorial

 Monument on the lawn of Colbert County Courthouse. Thanks to all the Southern Patriots who showed up to support our Confederate Heritage. God Bless Dixie!
