CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL DAY SERVICES


The North Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans is proud to announce the 2017 Confederate Memorial Day services. We invite you to support our camps in their observance of Confederate Memorial Day which is on May 10th of each year in the State of North Carolina. As the proud descendants of Confederate Veterans it is our honor to keep those traditions that our forebears left to us. As those before us we will honor this tradition with decorating of graves, laying of wreaths, special messages by keynote speakers and the firing of military salutes. Consider your support to these annual memorial services in the remembrance of our ancestors who sacrificed so much in an effort to protect the liberty left to them by their fathers following the American Revolution in the first War for Independence.


“Ne Obliviscaris…” Lest We Forget

The city is also one of only a few cities remaining that still welcome the descendants of Confederate Veterans to their event. The overwhelming support from the crowd to us has always been exceptional as we honor our Confederate Veterans.
We invite you to join us in this tradition of honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Parade starts at 11:00 am so please meet us at 32 E. Main Street NS, Thomasville, NC 27360 around 10:00 am if you are participating to give us time to organize our group. If using your GPS use address of “Monkeez Brew” and we will be meeting across the street to organize our group.
All are welcome including re-enactors, historical organizations and heritage supporters at this annual tradition. If you cannot walk the route and would like to ride we can make arrangements. Please contact Commander Freeman for any questions or more information.
