Veteran’s Day in Tennessee!

Three Compatriots from the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter traveled southward on Friday to join the Tennessee State Color Guard in marking two Patriot graves in the Antioch community.  Geoff Baggett, Steve Mallory, and Bob Sholly represented the Kentucky Society at the back-to-back events.

The first ceremony was in honor of Pvt. Isaac Johnson of the North Carolina Continental Line.  Geoff played the regimental drum for the color guard and presented a wreath from the Kentucky Society.  Steve and Bob presented the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter wreath and fired in the gun salute.15000844_10153997665286156_3333407350815068688_o.jpg

The second ceremony, held in a small, private cemetery in the heart of a bustling business district, was in honor of Edward Collinsworth of the 1st Virginia Regiment.  Once again, Geoff played the regimental drum for the color guard and presented a wreath from the Kentucky Society.  Steve and Bob presented the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter wreath and fired in the gun salute.
