Veterans Honored during Confederate Memorial

Sunday was a day for people in this area to pay tribute to fallen veterans.

A Confederate memorial service was held at the Confederate cemetary in Marion Sunday afternoon. Similar types of services are held on the first Sunday of April all over the state of Mississippi.

Organizers say they don't actually know the identities of some of the veterans buried in the cemetery. However, some were identified through a list discovered in the archives at the Lauderdale County Courthouse.
