"Bonnie Blue" was played by the ladies on piccolo and flute, and "Amazing Grace" was performed by the bagpiper.  The keynote speaker was Mark Simpson, SC Division Commander.  The Rector, Father Ned Morris, presented the historical significance of the Confederate States, and is himself the descendant of a Union soldier and 2 Southerners.
