115th Anniversary of the Confederate monument dedication May 30, 2010
*Note
"The camp dead, (Camp Douglas Confederate POW camp, Chicago) were first buried at the prison but then moved to Lincoln Park. It was admitted that some of bones may have been left behind. They were then removed to Oak Woods Cemetary. However, some are in the parking lot of an African-American owned funeral parlor. The owner flew a Confederate flag over his lot until his death in 1996 to honor the men, not the cause, he said. A further 200 are buried in Rosehill Cemetary. These were primarily from the battles of Ft. Donelson, Shiloh, and Vicksburg." - [http://home.xnet.com/~jkelley/VirtualTours.fldr/VirtualChicago.fldr/Cemeteries.fldr/CemOakWoods.fldr/CemOakWoods01.html Accessed April 30, 2010.]
