I missed Confederate Memorial Day Thursday April 26th, and I missed Kate Pierson's birthday, which was Friday April 27th. Badness on my part. Here's a B52s pic- Got to go- the Flint River is callling! more later
Later- See next post for Flint River pics-
Above pics- Check out those inflated ticket prices!
Confederate Memorial Day-c. 1951, The Joe Brown [West End] High Rebels marched in the huge Confederate Memorial Day Parade, and as we see here, Mom and another worthy participant laid a wreath at a Confederate marker. I'd love for some of you who marched, or watched, to share your memories, and let me know if this marker is at Oakland Cemetary or where. In other southside news, Mary Phagan left her mother's boarding house [Mrs Coleman, in Eagan]one dissapointingly drizzly spring morning and set out to watch the parade, but tragically never made it.
