NEWS
New Memorial Dedication
Courtesy of Spokesman-Review
Members of Washington Artillery Camp  2178, successfully procured and erected a new headstone for PVT Hugh McLaughlin, Co. D, 19 Mississippi Infantry.  The dedication ceremony was held on 6 October 2012 at the Greenwood Cemetery in Spokane, WA.  PVT McLaughlin's grave had been unattended and forgotten several years with no indication of his Confederate service.  Commander Rick Leaumont and members of Camp 2178 worked with McLaughlin's great-grand daughter and the VA to obtain the marker for the forgotten soldier.    News of the ceremony was carried in a local Spokane paper and made radio news as far away as Seattle .   Click here for a video of the ceremony...
