Flat Rock Cemetery, Jonesville, SC Re-Dedication Ceremony

There is an old cemetery near Jonesville, SC called Flat Rock Cemetery. It was recently on the news that someone had stolen some of the Confederate Honor Crosses from the graves there. The Gault family have most of the graves in this small cemetery and they requested help from the local SCV camp (Sons of Confederate Veterans). They were able to have them re-placed and they hed a re-dedication ceremony today. Stan and I went. Stan is a member of the Spartanburg camp, the Adam Washington Ballenger Camp #68. We met some friends down there. Several local camps participated and re-enactors came from as far as Rock Hill, SC to be part of the Honor Guard.
