People from almost every section of the county attended the "Memorial Day" exercises in Kingstree Monday.
Forty-two veterans were in the "Memorial Day" parade. Surely this is not the total number of living Confederate soldiers in Williamsburg county, and, yet, how few are alive! Soon we shall see their brave, battle-scarred, time-worn faces no more, and the day of veteran parading shall have passed into history.
