Confederate Memorial Day Service

Posted on

On Sunday, May 29, at 3 PM the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia, will host a Confederate Memorial Day Service.  Taking place in the Confederate Section of 1,999 fallen Confederate soldiers plus 1 Union soldier, this unique Memorial Day service should be experienced.  Scripture readings, singing of hymns and “old-time” songs, quiet moments of reflection and enjoying a beautiful Sunday afternoon are just part of the experience.  You will also see people in period dress (it is encouraged), many of whom are direct descendants of those buried here.  As part of Lynchburg’s history this event should not be missed.
