Marker Replacement Program

marker-replacementThe Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg, VA, donated $1500 to be used for the Marker Replacement Program and the general upkeep of the cemetery. Founded in 1957, The Round Table is one of the oldest in the nation. They couldn’t ask for a better location: four major battles of the Civil War were fought within 20 miles of Fredericksburg. The group of about 100 members meets once each month for a catered dinner followed by the presentation of a Civil War topic by a guest speaker – frequently a nationally-known author.

The replacement program started several years ago by the CWRT. They research the oldest civil war soldiers stones which are either broken beyond repair and or illegible . Then they order replacement flush markers to identify the soldiers. It has been a great help to the LMA. They do the installation themselves and the LMA is so very appreciative.
