Getting ready

The Liverpool event continues to get positive feedback.

Everyday I contunie to get letters , emails  and phone calls about the highly succesful event recently held in Toxteth cemetery in Liverpool. 
It was so good to see the restored grave site and hopefully future generations will visit the site and even if they don't know what we did here they will know of Lt. I.S. Bulloch and hopefully learn of his epic voyages in their lessons on local history.
We were all so pleased to see the results of the councils regeneration program, Toxteh cemetery tells the history of one of the world's greatest cities on its head stones. The cemetery is as historically important to Liverpool as Glasnevin cemetery is to Dublin or the Protestant cemterey is to Rome.
A smaller ceremony was held on the same day for Federal Cavalryman James H. Stubbs of the 1st NJ Cavalry....of the 2 million men who served in blue from 1861-65, not one had more horses (7) shot from under him. Only CS Generals Forrest (29)and Wheeler (13)had more horses shot from them of the particpants in the war

Neville reads 'The Blanket'

July 18 2009 will remain in a lot of people's minds for some time. I feel honoured to have played a part in this memorable occasion. Also it has had a positive effect on future events as the Liverpool councillor Berni Turner has proposed that Liverpool have its own annual Confederate Heritage Weekend .One of the most positive responses we have ever had world wide to a Southern Heritage event.
