Recollection

People came to the cemetery every June 3rd to observe Jefferson Davis's birthday. The women brought box lunches and the children marched and the politicians spoke.

"You didn't dare celebrate the 31st of May," recalled Dorothy Butler Hopkins. "You know, my father [a son of Confederate Charles M. Butler] wouldn't wear a pair of blue jeans or anything else blue. No siree, you couldn't bring anything blue into his house. He wore khaki, gray, anything but blue." It was, however, a private protest.
