Old Clarkesville Cemetery honors fallen

In advance of Memorial Day, military personnel lost in long-ago wars were honored at the Old Clarkesville Cemetery. On May 23, Polly Earle, a member of the Historic Clarkesville Cemetery Preservation, Inc. Board of Directors replaced faded flags at the cemetery. Joined by Prynne Reason Dockery, 4, of Clarkesville, the project offered a chance to impart a bit of local history to a younger generation. It is estimated more than 20 veterans rest at the cemetery, some in unmarked graves. 
The cemetery project remains a priority for HCCP, Inc. but special events are on hold until the fall. For more information, visit oldclarkesvillecemtery.com or find Old Clarkesville Cemetery on Facebook or Instagram.
