Unknown Civil War soldier. This unknown soldier's remains were discovered in 1999 on Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga, TN. On April 21, 2001, after research on the bones, he was laid to rest in Chattanooga's Confederate Cemetery with full military honors given by both Union and Confederate Civil War reenactors. The casket was draped with both a U.S. and Confederate flag, and was born on a caisson drawn by six horses. Two reenactors marched alongside the caisson as pallbearers, one dressed as a Union soldier, one as a Confederate. Two trumpeters played Taps, one echoing the other. The two flags were folded and given to two "widow" reenactors, one "Union," one "Confederate."
