Today I attended the unvieling of a new monument dedicated to the Alabama Brigade (3rd, 5th, 6th, 12th,61st) on the site of the 3rd Battle of Winchester.
This monument was place primarily through the efforts of a descendant of a soldier in 6th Alabama Infantry. The descendants name is CDR Craig Morin USNR (retired) and was placed on land preserved by the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation. The dedication was made by Robert K. Krick.
It was refreshing to see that there are still people that are willing to work towards preserving history, instead of tearing it down.
