Unknown Civil War Soldier

Down a rural road in Union Parish, near Alabama Landing, on an embankment, you will find this monument for the "Unknown Soldier". Placed by my Dad on 5/22/92, marking the gravesite of a Civil War Soldier..... I have done nothing to earn the freedoms I enjoy, but many men and women gave their life, and so did Jesus!
