Biography

With an attendance of 107 compatriots and descendants, Pvt.Malachi Thompson of the 47th Georgia Infantry, "Chatham Volunteers," Army of Tennessee was given full military honors and the dedication of a new tombstone.

Assisted by the Camden Mounted Rifle of Woodbine, Ga., The Capt.Winston Stephens Camp of Macclenny, Fl., The W.W. Loring Camp of St. Augustine,Fl., The UDC and The Order of Robert E. Lee of Woodbine, the officers of the Lt. Johnston camp offered forth a ceremonial dedication.

Resplendent in Confederate uniforms and ladies in period dress leading the mourners, the officers conducted both a solemn and joyous service over a "mock coffin" draped with theConfederate Battle flag. The ambience was enhanced by poetry, Southern songs, a bagpiper and an honor guard.

Posthumously, CSA Purple Heart certificates were awarded to two descendents of Pvt. Thompson, commemorating the wounds that he received at the Battle of Chickamauga in 1863.

The service was concluded by the firing of 3 volleys, "Taps' by the bugler and the bagpiperplayed "Amazing Grace" as he faded into the nearby woods.

Commander Jim Lear officiated.

 

 


 

I salute the Confederate flag, with affection, reverence, and undying devotion to the Cause for which it stands.
