The Delaware Grays Camp No. 2068 held a Delaware Confederate Veterans Monument Ceremony April 27.

 

The ceremony observed April as Confederate History Month and also honored two more Delaware Confederate Veterans whose names were added to the monument.

 

The names of John Custis of Newark and William James of Baltimore Hundred, Sussex County, were added to the monument.

 

The keynote speaker for the event was author Shannon Pritchard of Richmond, Va. His current book is titled “Collecting the Confederacy.”

 

Shown raising the Army of Tennessee Battle Flag, also known as the confederate flag, over the monument is Jeff Plummer Jr.

 

Each year during April the Delaware Grays fly a new flag over the monument.
