On Saturday morning I heard the sound of drums outside. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and ran outside in my pajamas. I had a good idea what it was- this happens every year.
Saturday was Confederate Memorial Day- it’s actually recognized by the state of SC. Basically, a parade of folks (some in costumes!) place wreaths on the graves of Confederate soldiers in Elmwood Cemetery and then march to the state house where they do some sort of ceremony. Our house just happens to be on the route to the state house.
I think it’s a nice sentiment, celebrating fallen soldiers, but I don’t exactly understand this holiday. However, I always love a good hoop skirt. They’re fun even in 90 degree weather!
