Cleaning Union Headstones

Recently, the Lt Col Elihu Hutton Camp 569 SCV started cleaning the headstones of Union soldiers, as part of our respect of all American soldiers, whether they are Confederate, Union or soldiers of other American conflicts.

One of our first cleanings was the headstones of Jesse F. Phares, who served as a scout for the Union army, and the headstone of his wife, Lucinda Phares.
