I enjoyed myself at the monument dedication. We the men of Stanford's Mississippi Battery feel a strong attachment to the battlefield in your hometown. We are proud of the part we have been able to play in the preserving of the hollowed ground. The pulling together of folks from all parts of Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee, to save our history, is a wonderful thing to see. I enjoyed the part I have played in each reenactment at Raymond, after joining the group in 2000. I pray that the effort will continue to advance in a manner that will do justice toward the men who gave all, along Fourteen Mile Creek.
