Veterans' Day Salute - Virginia's Last Surviving Confederate Veteran
On the day set aside to honor our veterans, the Virginia Flaggers pause to remember all those who have served in America's armed forces, with a special tribute to Virginia's own James Albert Spicer, the Commonwealth's last surviving Confederate Veteran.
This picture was taken on Dec. 20, 1947 in the town of Orange, VA in a parade. He was 103 years old!
He served in the 7th Virginia Infantry Company K, Madison county grays. One of our supporters has taken on the task of caring for his grave and sent us this photo of his recently cleaned headstone...
God bless the eternal memory of James Albert Spicer and all of the men who wore the grey and fought for Right.
This is why we do what we do. So they are NEVER forgotten.
All glory to God. All honor to the Confederate soldier.
