The Civic and Cemetery Club is in the process of building a veteran's memorial at Gethsemane Cemetery. I ran across this item in the June 3, 1910 issue of the Caddo Herald.
U.C.V Decoration Day
Camp Cooper No. 1431 U.C.V. and the members of the G.A.R. of Caddo met at the Court room the evening of the 30th and together with relatives and friends proceeded to the Caddo cemetery with baskets of flowers and decorated the graves of all the Confederates they could find and the four G.A. R. graves that were pointed out by relatives and friends. Beautiful flowers were strewn upon the graves of all alike, by Confederates, their daughters, and the members of the G.A.R.
June the 3rd had been set aside as decoration day by the U.C.V. of Oklahoma, but the Camp Cooper voted to join with the G.A.R., their decoration day being the 30th, National Day.
Although the public had been asked to join us in these sad but loving acts, only a few turned out to do honor to the dead. Two confederate graves were left unhonored because they could not be found, no one being present to point them out.
There lies buried in the Caddo cemetery four Federal soldiers: W.W. Hibbard, Richard Moffatt, Hopkins, and Watkins.
And of Confederates, Maj. Aron Harlan, Walker, Capt. W. L. Woods, B.C. Phillips, Arch McRussell, David Blakney, Dr. Manning, J. W. Bannister, I. H. Meadows, and Woodward.
