Headstones Cleaned at Evergreen Cemetery
Headstones in the soldiers lot at Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate were cleaned throughout October by members of the Mary Ingles and Rebecca Bryan Boone chapters of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).
More than one hundred headstones were carefully scrubbed and restored in honor of fallen heroes, an announcement said.
Evergreen Cemetery will be a site for Wreaths Across America in December.
The mission of the service organization, NSDAR, is to promote historic preservation, patriotism and education.
