These original headstones were placed in May 1903 by the Joe Wheeler Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy. On June 3, 1903 a dedication service was held by the Daughters of the Confederacy and veterans of the Horace King Camp, United Confederate Veterans. This site was rededicated on April 26, 2005 by the Joe Wheeler Chapter No. 291. United Daughters of the Confederacy and Sons of Liberty Camp 580. Sons of Confederate Veterans, Decatur, Alabama.
