Confederate Cemetery “Decoration Day” Ceremony

San Antonio, Texas

The Confederate Cemetery Association in partnership with Sons of Confederate Veteran Camps #1325 and #153 and the Order of the Confederate Rose Chapter #4 will conduct the annual Confederate Decoration Day ceremony on Sunday, April 30, 2017, at 2 p.m. at the historic Confederate Cemetery located in the heart of San Antonio City Cemetery #4.  The cemetery borders the north-side of East Commerce Street between South New Braunfels Avenue and Palmetto Street.

The upcoming ceremony will include Civil War reenactors from the 6th Texas Volunteer Infantry who will participate as color guards, riflemen, and artillerymen.  The keynote speaker will be the distinguished author and past Texas Division Commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Mr. John C. Perry.  Recognition will be given to Sergeant John Bowen, 7th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, USV, a key sponsor of the Confederate Cemetery.  Also, special recognition will be given to Modesto Torres, Private, Company B, 33rd Texas Cavalry, CSA.  His family were early settlers of San Antonio and among his many accomplishments include service as Deputy Sheriff of the Bexar County Jail and Chief of Police of the San Antonio Fair of 1890.  Upon his death on April 1, 1924, Modesto Torres was recognized as being the last Bexar County Indian fighter, having participated in the Indian battle near Krempkau divide in 1872.

The mission of the Confederate Cemetery Association is to restore and preserve the final resting place of the heroes and families of the San Antonio region and America who lie within the Confederate Cemetery.
