Part Of the camp’s workday in November consisted of restoring the wall around John Hemming’s burial plot. John Hemming is the father of Charles Hemming who paid for and erected the Confederate monument in Hemming Park.
August Work Day at Old City Cemetery
On Saturday, August 23rd, members of Kirby-Smith Camp #1209 attended our monthly work day at Old City Cemetery. As per our agreement with the City of Jacksonville, trash was picked up along the roads surrounding the cemetery. The sprinkler system in the Confederate section was also repaired. Thanks to our members, Old City is really looking good and is something to be proud of.
