The continued project of obtaining grave markers for the unmarked Confederates in Allegheny Cemetery was discussed. We agreed to present the cemetery with a letter on the day of our anual flag placement ceremony. Bugs was presented with his framed award, given to him at the Division meeting in 2010, for displaying the Confederate flag.

Several Camp members signed a letter that we will forward to other Camp members and eventually on to Allegheny Cemetery. We are currently working to secure grave markers for 7 Confederate soldiers who do not have markers.

Photographs from our observance of Confederate Memorial Day at Allegheny Cemetery have been added. Flags were placed at the graves of the five confirmed Confederate veterans buried there. As of today we are investigating the possible burial of at least 7 other Confederate soldiers at Allegheny Cemetery. Hopefully, our efforts today have afforded these veterans a small measure of the honor they deserve.

New photographs have been added. The brick was cleaned and a MUCH better photograph of the brick is now available! Photographs from our Memorial Day trip will be uploaded after the event. Additionally, there are new photographs of the grave marker for Major John Franklin Gray, CSA, located in Sewickley Cemetery. See the album with his name!

New photographs have been added! They include a photograph of our brick at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum. Click on the "Photos" link above. The photo is a bit blurry, so we'll have to add another one! Futher, note the OUTRAGEOUS marker that is also at the Museum. It is laughable.

Our camp has purchased a commemorative brick that has been placed on the front walkway, the so-called "Pathway to History", at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum on Forbes Avenue in Pittsburgh (Oakland), PA. Click on the "Photos" link along the top to see a photograph of the brick.

Our camp welcomes our newest member, Matthew. His acceptance into our camp was also noted in the March/April 2010 issue of Confederate Veteran.

At our meeting on March 1, 2010, our camp officially welcomed Bugs as a new Associate Member. He was presented a form, signed by the camp commander, that indicates his membership. Bugs was enthusiastically accepted becuase of his deeply held beliefs in the honor of the Confederate soldier.
