Affair at Shiloh

I hope to attend this affair—-


On April 9, 2016 at 11:00 a. m. at the Mississippi Monument at Shiloh we will be having a event to honor all Mississippi soldiers that fought at The Battle of Shiloh. This is a Mississippi Division Sons of Confederate Veterans and Mississippi Division United Daughters of the Confederacy event. Since the SCV and UDC did not get the reconnection that we should have on October 10 we are having this event to do what we did not get to do in October. All speakers that day will be SCV and UDC members. Mr. Grady Howell will be the guest speaker, he will be speaking about the 6th Mississippi at Shiloh. After that we will laying flower wreaths on the Confederate burial trench in Rhea Field, a musket salute, and someone playing taps. We would like for all SCV camps and UDC chapters to lay a wreath. This is the burial trench that we think that most of the 6th Mississippi soldiers are buried in. We need reenactors for a color guard and for the musket salute. For all reenactors we have a place for you to camp that is not on the park, it is close to where the Confederates camped the night before the battle.
