Big Confederate Flag and Memorial Plaza

The cemetery behind this memorial is Pierce Family Cemetery -- my grandfather.s family. The small walk though at the top is the site of the home of John Pierce. He was the first farmer/settler there. I believe he came from Louisiana, originally from France. He was a fur trapper/farmer.

Is it something that should be memorialized, I'm not so sure. But still interesting. The flag is quite large, and you are being watched by satellite.
