Tribute


One of the often-overlooked events of Battle of Selma Weekend is the tribute given to the Confederate dead in Old Live Oak Cemetery.

Guest photographer Christine Weerts attended this morning's memorial service and shared her photo of seven-year-old Brian Phelps of Bay Minette as he participates as a Confederate solider in part of the ceremony.

Great picture. It is so comforting to see folks still making efforts to remember the oh so painful Civil War. Even though there are misunderstandings of all the reasons behind the war, I thank God for the end result- a United State.
I just hope & pray that Americans from all walks of like remain faithful to their blessed homeland.
