The Stonewall Brigade Camp organized a Color and Honor Guard for the 2012 Lexington Memorial Day program in cooperation with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1499. This photo is at the rear of the old Courthouse. You can see a portion of Stonewall Jackson's House in the background.
This photo was taken about a year after The Stonewall Brigade Camp formed. It is taken in front of the VMI barracks at the statue of Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson and behind the "Four Gospels" cannon of the Rockbridge Artillery which were nicknamed "Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John." The statue was made by Sir Moses Ezekiel, a famed Jewish sculptor and a VMI cadet who fought at the famous battle of New Market during the War Between the States.
The Stonewall Brigade provided a color guard for the installation of a Confederate Cross of honor upon the grave of Pvt. Preston Benson. The marker was installed by the Joseph W. Anderson chapter United Daughters of the Confederacy.
The Stonewall Brigade's Color Guard participated in the ceremonies unveiling four new tombstones for Confederate soldiers buried at Natural Brigade Baptist Church.
