Maplewood Cemetery (Postcard)

Item Description

In January of 2009, the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp removed the old grave markers in the section of Durham's Maplewood Cemetery designated for Confederate Veterans. Over the years, the headstones had deteriorated, many as a result of vandalism. The markers were replaced, and the site was rededicated in July of 2009.

The new markers are more uniform, stating each veteran's company and "C.S.A." but without additional inscriptions such as "A Faithful Confederate Soldier," which had appeared on some of the older stones.
