A Dixie Day In Columbia, SC!

On Saturday, May 5th, the South Carolina Division Sons of Confederate Veterans, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Order of the Confederate Rose, Children of the Confederacy and the Military Order of the Stars and Bars will be honoring Confederate Memorial Day in downtown Columbia, SC.

The events begin with a memorial service at the Confederate section of Elmwood Cemetery by the SC UDC at 10 A.M.

This will be followed by a 3-4 mile parade through downtown Columbia around 11 A.M. from Elmwood Cemetery to the State Capitol.

From about noon to 1:30 P.M. the SC SCV will conduct a memorial day service at the base of the Confederate Soldiers Monument in front of the capitol ending with a 21 cannon salute and volley fired by the Palmetto Battalion Confederate re-enactors.

Anyone who wants to participate in the whole ceremony should be at Elmwood Cemetery by no later than 9:30 AM dressed appropriately. If you want to be in the parade be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Those not taking part in the parade should be at the Capitol by 11 A.M. and waiting. Be sure to bring something to eat and water, it gets hot in early May in Columbia.

Following the events there is the Battle of Columbia re-enactment the same day, or take a trip to the Confederate Relic Room at the State Museum.

Hope to see Y'all there!
