Confederate Graves
For the Woodlawn Cemetery Tour the local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans had researched and marked the graves of each and every Civil War veteran buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, more than 100 of them according to official cemetery records. Chapter members dressed in Civil War attire created a very realistic atmosphere; they bivouacked at the cemetery, fired artillery, marched and conducted individual tours and demonstrations throughout the day.

Parker's group played an integral role in Sesquicentennial activities throughout the week, setting up a resource library at the Masonic Lodge for individuals requiring assistance researching ancestors with Civil War service records in Amite or Pike County.
