PALESTINE — The John H. Reagan Camp No. 2156 of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans officially opened its Confederate Veterans Memorial Plaza Saturday following a parade and dedication ceremony at its location on private property in downtown Palestine.
The plaza will serve as a permanent place of honor and remembrance for Confederate veterans from Anderson County, the State of Texas and across the South.
With representation from the SCV’s regional, state and national organization, the local camp raised five flags for the first time, including the Texas state flag surrounded by the first, second and third national flags of the Confederacy, along with the Confederate battle flag.
