A special Veteran’s Day tribute from The Sons of the American Revolution, Tennessee Valley Chapter

MADISON COUNTY – The Sons of the American Revolution, Tennessee Valley Chapter, has assembled a group of 46 pictures of veteran’s tombstones and grave markers from the local area as a special tribute to those who have served on Veteran’s Day.  They include veterans from all major conflicts – Revolutionary War through Afghanistan.

According to Jess Brown with the Sons of the American Revolution, Tennessee Valley Chapter, included among them is Madison County’s first casualty of WWI (Gentry) and Alabama’s first casualty of WWII (Luther Isom) who was killed on board the USS Arizona.  “Many, but not all, of the tombstones indicate that the veteran was killed in action,” Brown said.

The photos in the gallery above were provided to The Madison County Record as a courtesy by the Sons of the American Revolution.  “We thought they might be helpful in some way with remembering veterans, since there will be no live Veterans Day Parade in Huntsville,” Brown said. “This is important in a community with so many who have served.”

The pics were taken in three cemeteries in the area – Maple Hill, Athens City, and Indian Creek, a cemetery that historically served African-Americans.
